2008 Mount Eden Estate Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(includes 16% merlot and 2% petit verdot; aged in a 50/50 blend of French and American oak): Opaque ruby. Fragrant dark berry and cherry scents are deepened by notes of cured tobacco, vanilla, licorice and dark chocolate, with a smoky mineral nuance adding vibrancy. Sappy, penetrating blackcurrant and bitter cherry flavors are sweetened by notes of vanilla, mocha and candied flowers. This powerful, elegant cabernet finishes youthfully tannic and long, with excellent clarity."

2008 Clos du Val Stag's Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "CELLAR SELECTION Made in the classic Clos du Val style, this Cabernet is less ripe, drier and more acidic than many of its Napa Valley neighbors. It’s also very tannic. Currently, it’s an aloof, austere wine, but it has a deep core of blackberries. This wants at least eight years in a proper cellar, and should age well for another decade beyond that." (9/2012) Connoisseurs Guide: "Very much in keeping with Clos du Val's typically underplayed style, this nervy young middleweight eschews high ripeness and keys instead on subtle, cherry-like fruit. It is helped along by pleasant ...Read More »

2008 Hundred Acre "Ark Vineyard" Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red-ruby. Sexy aromas of raspberry, redcurrant, mocha, toffee, spices, smoke and minerals. Plush on entry, then thick in the middle but with surprising acidity framing and lifting the smooth red fruit and toffee flavors. Boasts compelling breadth and palate presence. Wonderfully fine-grained, extract-rich cabernet with an unflagging finish. Like a liquid confection but with plenty of supporting structure for long aging. (ST)" (6/2011) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Deserves its high score by virtue of power and sheer flamboyant dazzle. Packed with ripe, sweet cherries and mi ...Read More »

2008 Vérité "Le Désir" Sonoma County Bordeaux Blend

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The fruit for this blend of 61% Cabernet Franc, 31% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec came from Chalk Hill (58%) and Alexander Valley (42%). Pierre Seillan believes the Chalk Hill fruit provides a truffle-like character and the Alexander Valley gives minerality, structure, tannin and intensity. The 2008 will be fascinating to taste next to the 2007 over the next 30+ years.

Of the 2007 Groth "Reserve" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon,Wine Enthusiast writes: "A huge Cabernet, in the best sense of the word. It wasn’t the easiest vintage, as 2007 was, but meticulous winemaking did the job, resulting in this amazingly rich, impressively ripe wine that’s drinkable now and will develop for many years. The fruits veer toward blackberries, cherries and cola, and the tannins are soft and refined. One hundred percent new French oak isn’t at all heavy, lending nuances of buttered toast and sweet wood tannins. Will easily age for 15 years." (02/2012)

An expressive bouquet redolent of sweet herbs, tobacco and incense leads to a gorgeous tapestry of dark red fruit. The Estate is drop-dead gorgeous, with the silkiest of tannins that frame an extraordinary finish. This has to be one of the most compelling values in California Cabernet. (AG)" (08/2011)

2008 Beaulieu Vineyard "Georges de Latour Private Reserve" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another brilliant offering is the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon "Georges de Latour" Private Reserve. It possesses a dense ruby/purple color along with terrific structure, lots of creme de cassis, minerality, beautiful purity of black currants and cherries, a judicious touch of oak, and a full-bodied, structural profile that is almost Bordeaux-like. This complete, rich and promising effort should be a 25-30-year wine...BV appears to be returning to the glorious form it exhibited in the fifties, sixties and early seventies."

2008 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this bottle of 2008 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (97RP, 95JS, 95ST, 95W&S, 92WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Monte Bello is striking. It is a decidedly muscular Monte Bello endowed with layers of dark fruit. Tobacco, mint, asphalt and crushed rocks develop in the glass, adding tons of complexity and finesse. A long, saline finish rounds things out beautifully. In 2008 the cold growing season stretched into October and the wine definitely has the feel of a cool vintage. The spring frost and the second year of drought conditions lowered yields significantly. Yields were just 1.25 tons per acre on average, but some of the older vineyards came in at less than 1 ton per acre. The balance of fruit, tannin and structure is simply extraordinary, but the wine needs time, most likely lots of it. In 2008 the blend is 72% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2038. 97+ points. (AG)" (08/2011)

The wine comes alive in the glass, with crushed rose petals, dark raspberry jam, licorice and spices. There is an exotic element to the fruit that is highly appealing. Today the tannins are quite firm, suggesting the wine needs at least a few more years in the cellar. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2038.

Full-bodied and focused, ending with a long, persistent finish. Drink now through 2021." (11/2011) K&L Notes: Winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown offers his tasting notes: "The 2008 Rivers-Marie Cab is, in its early stages, driven by texture. Less opaque in the glass than the '07, the '08 begins with aromas of fully ripe raspberry and blueberry and is followed shortly with notes of sandalwood and pencil shavings.

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2008 Colgin "IX Estate" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (OWC - 99JS, 99WE, 96RP, 94ST, 93WS) in original wood. Wine Enthusiast: "This is an absolutely beautiful wine to drink now, but the richness comes at the price of considerable alcohol. The color is dark and impenetrable, the aromas huge in Cabernet-inspired blackberries and black currants, with a touch of something herbal and also a stony minerality. There’s also a fascinating peatiness, like an Islay Scotch. It really opens up in the glass, becoming ever more complex. It’s great Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, but that high alcohol may limit its ageability." (10/2012)

Try holding for a year or two, but if you pop the cork now, give the wine a few hours of decanting."

2008 Hundred Acre "Kayli Morgan" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "More European in style than some of its siblings, the 2008 exhibits good acidity, more noticeable tannin (but it is extremely young), and plenty of crushed rock, espresso roast and licorice characteristics intermixed with a volcanic minerality. Full-bodied, ripe and opulent, with a closed, formidable personality, it should be at its apogee between 2018 and 2035. 96+ (RP)" (6/2012) 96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full red-ruby.
