2008 Chateau Montelena "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, which is not yet in bottle, may turn out to be nearly as good. It exhibits a full-bodied power as well as lots of black fruit, licorice, damp earth and spice characteristics. Textured and rich with sweeter tannin and more upfront appeal than the 2007, the long, impressive 2008 should age for 20-25 years. (RP)" (12/2010) 91-94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep ruby. Lovely lift and purity to the aromas of cassis, violet and bitter chocolate. Juicy, vibrant and intense; less dense than the 2007 but more perfumed in the mid-palate. Very fine-grained win ...Read More »

2008 Cain "Concept-The Benchlands" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

Jancis Robinson: "Quite a departure from the fruit-centric Napa norm. Roasted coffee, a tiny bit of herbal character. Savoury and structural. Good restraint within an extrovert idiom. (RH)" (2/2013) Wine Spectator: "Shows a meaty, peppery side of Cabernet, rich and extracted, offering dried dark berry and fresh-turned earth. A solid effort with chewy, leathery tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2020. (JL)" (11/2012) K&L Notes: Cain "Concept" is vinified exactly like their signature bottling, Cain "Five".

2008 Larkmead Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot aged 20 months in 60% new French oak) reveals a Medoc-like nose of cedarwood, damp earth, black currants and hints of bay leaf and unsmoked cigar tobacco. Opulence, purity and density combined with a thick, full-bodied mouthfeel and a superb finish all suggest a wine that can be drunk now or cellared for two decades. (RP)" (12/2010) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep ruby-red. Aromas and flavors of black cherry, blackberry, crushed stone and menthol.

2008 Nickel & Nickel "Dragonfly Vineyard" St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon

The four-acre Dragonfly Vineyard is located at the base of Spring Mountain in St. Helena. The vineyard is situated in a consistently warm mesoclimate, which enables the fruit to develop notably ripe and jammy fruit with gobs of Napa Valley cassis character. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was aged for 16 months in 48% new French oak. From the winery: "The 2008 vintage as a whole captures incredibly ripe flavors with mouthwatering tannins, and the 2008 Dragonfly in particular is a beautiful expression of the vintage. Strawberry and boysenberry aromas entice ... Read More »

2008 Chateau Montelena "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)

91-94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(includes 1.5% cabernet franc) Good deep ruby. Lovely lift and purity to the aromas of cassis, violet and bitter chocolate. Juicy, vibrant and intense; less dense than the 2007 but more perfumed in the mid-palate. Very fine-grained wine, finishing long and aromatic, with firm tannic bite and a late note of bitter chocolate. "Two thousand eight was an impossible year to make 15% wines with a 4.0 pH in Napa Valley," said Bo Barrett, adding that "it's more fun to be working in the classical world. In 2008, there's less jam to block the terroir and mineralit ...Read More »

2008 Chateau St. Jean "Cinq Cepages" Sonoma County Red

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Cinq Cepages is an explosive wine endowed with tons of depth and richness. It is an impeccably textured wine graced with notable size and elegance. Blackberry jam, savory herbs, graphite, tar and licorice inform the exuberant, polished finish. The 2008 relies heavily on fruit from vineyards in Knights Valley, with the addition of fruit from Alexander and Sonoma Valleys. In 2008 the blend is 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 3% Malbec. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2028. This is a fabulous ...Read More »

2008 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

97 points Vinous: "The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Insignia is a towering, statuesque wine bursting with blackberry jam, tar, spices, leather and licorice. It shows fabulous depth and richness backed up by serious, imposing tannins that suggest it has a long life. Ideally, the 2008 should be purchased by those who can be patient; it is not a wine for those seeking immediate gratification. The blend is 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot and 4% Malbec.

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.

Very impressive for its purity, finesse and graceful finish. (JL)" (8/2011) 94 points James Suckling: "Big and rich on the nose with very dark fruits and milk chocolate.

2008 Joseph Phelps Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon (a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot and Malbec) is an impressive version. Their 1975 Cabernet Sauvignon is still alive at age 35. The 2008s dense ruby/purple color is followed by an attractive bouquet of creme de cassis and charcoal. Revealing full-bodied richness and lots of depth, it is one of the finest regular Cabernet Sauvignons Phelps has made in many years.

2008 Robert Craig Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon

It is medium to full-bodied and very juicy, with pure, concentrated fruit, sweet tannin, a hint of graphite and a long finish. While it's not the 2007, it's a beauty. Drink it over the next 10-14 years." (8/2011) 92 points Wine & Spirits: "The fresh black cherry flavors of this wine have a cool, foresty tone.

2008 Staglin "Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points Connoisseurs Guide: "The argument that wines with high ripeness lose their varietal and place-driven character is undone by Staglin year in and year out with its keenly focused aroma and flavors of currant, loam and cola augmented but never dominated by the caramelly richness of fancy oak barrels. Full on the palate, supple and somewhat fleshy, the wine is impeccably balanced and very polished at first glance. Yet, that polish only serves to sequester the solid layer of tannin that sits in the background and will keep things in fine fettle for a decade."

A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it exhibits an opaque purple color, great intensity and a sweet nose of blue and black fruits intermixed with toasty oak, lead pencil shavings and forest floor.

Bid on this bottle of 2008 Colgin "IX Estate" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (99JS, 99WE, 96RP, 94ST, 93WS). 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)

2008 Screaming Eagle "Second Flight" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Second Flight emerges from the glass with black cherries, plums, mocha, espresso and chocolate. This is an especially round, rich vintage for Second Flight. All the elements are in the right place, but overall, 2008 does not appear to be one of the estate’s very finest years. Of course, that is in relative terms. The 2008 is 53% Cabernet Sauvignon and 47% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2028. I have had a number of fabulous tastings at Screaming Eagle, but this was one of the most memorable. The biggest news at Screaming Eagle is the release ...Read More »

2008 Alpha Omega Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

A smattering of briar, a bit of forest-floor spice and plenty of rich oak work to add to its pleasures, but a goodly wait of some six to eight years is advised."

Medicinal aromas of black cherry, blueberry, minerals, bitter chocolate and licorice; a real essence of Spring Mountain cabernet. Dense, deep and juicy, with lovely inner-mouth perfume to the flavors of black raspberry, dark chocolate and minerals. Finishes with serious mountain tanins and excellent aromatic lift and length. This has filled in nicely since I tasted it last winter from barrel, but will require at least several years of bottle aging and may ultimately merit an even higher score.

Although slightly more austere than the exuberant 2007, it is loaded with fruit. An opaque ruby/purple hue is accompanied by notes of cassis, new saddle leather, camphor and loamy soil. The wine displays sweet tannin, medium to full-bodied flavors, outstanding richness and mild tannins in the finish. It requires 2-3 years of bottle age and should keep for 20-25 years. 93+ points.
