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. The tannins have sweetened over the last year and this impressively endowed effort, while approachable now, should age for 20+ y ...Read More »

2008 Dehlinger Russian River Valley Claret

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Claret (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) is a gorgeous wine. Blackberries, cassis, graphite, spices and menthol are some of the nuances that emerge from the glass. The wine shows terrific intensity all the way through to the finish. The tannins could use another year to soften, but this is nevertheless an impressive showing. In 2008 the Claret includes fruit from one of the estate's oldest parcels, originally planted in 1975. According to Tom Dehlinger, during blending trials this juice didn't seem to fit in with the Estate Cabernet, so it was used for ...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 Quintessa Rutherford Bordeaux Blend

93 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*Two Stars* There is no big burst of fruit or towering wave of sweet oak to make this one an immediate turner of heads, but there is a real sense of sophistication at work here with plenty of depth and layering right from the start. The wine is at once both slightly supple and fairly firm in feel, and its vitality is hard to ignore. It teases with touches of toast and dusty earth spice while hewing to a very long line of optimally ripened currants, and it has all the right pieces in all the right places to grow famously for ten years or more."

Harmonious wine. Made from 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, 8% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot. Best in 2014."

2008 Abreu "Thorevilos" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend
Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2008 Abreu "Thorevilos" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend ((96-98RP)). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As outstanding as all the Abreu wines are, if I had to choose one that stands apart from the others it would be Thorevilos. The 2008 Thorevilos is the most complete and deeply satisfying of Abreu’s 2008s because the balance of fruit and structure is so impeccable. The 2008 literally explodes onto the palate with masses of dark fruit, tar, licorice and smoke. There is a fleshiness and depth of the fruit here that separates the Thorevilos from the other 2008s. Layers of fruit build towards the massive, masculine finish. In 2008 Thorevilos is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc and 15% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2038. (AG)" (12/2011)

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.

A spectacular effort that is as black as a moonless night, this full-bodied wine boasts abundant aromas of creme de cassis, camphor and subtle oak presented in a voluptuously textured, full-bodied style with terrific richness and depth. Great intensity and opulence as well as a layered mouthfeel make for a remarkable wine that should age for 20-30+ years.

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.

(JL)" (11/2011) Connoisseurs Guide: "*One Star* Dark, dense and loamy in scent with a certain brooding aspect in the nose, BV's latest Tapestry Reserve proves to be a rounder and rather more refined wine on the palate than promised, and it does a nice job of balancing buoyant, well-defined fruit with no sma ...Read More »

Extraordinary aromas of violets and dark fruits such as blueberries and currants. I can't get over the aromas here. Then it goes to minerals with just a hint of bay leaf. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins with a beautiful softness and beautifulness. I love the balance and harmony to this with bright acidity. I would drink this before the 2007.

Its combination of currant and black cherry notes with hints of root beer and sweet loam are followed on the palate by a supple entry, balancing acidity and by the solid framing of long-grained, polished tannins.

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.

2008 Vineyard 29 "Aida Estate" St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From the 16-acre Aida Vineyard (a valley floor site with lots of stones and boulders as well as the famed black obsidian rocks), the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Aida Vineyard Estate (85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot and 6% Merlot aged for 20 months in 3/4's new French oak casks) exhibits plenty of earthy, chocolaty notes intertwined with hints of burning embers, camphor and spice.

2008 Fantesca "La Petite Soeur" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

Originally a historic 19th century vineyard with ties to Charles Krug, the property's viticulture didn't survive Phylloxera and Prohibition, being reclaimed by the surrounding forest for more than 70 years. After the vineyard was finally replanted in 1997 and the new estate erected, winemaker Heidi Barret came on board to craft the estate's wines. La Petite Soeur is their Bordeaux blend which includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petite Verdot.

2008 Vineyard 29 "29 Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon(375ml)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Vineyard 29 Estate (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) has to take a backseat to the virtually perfect 2007, but it is another strong effort. 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+, RP)" (12/2010) K&L Notes: From the w... Read More »
