2008 Opus One Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend Top Pick!
2008 Opus One Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

95 points Vinous: "Mocha, espresso, rosemary, lavender, plums and licorice emerge from the 2008 Opus One. Tasted from magnum, the 2008 is beautifully expressive. The firm tannins need more time to soften, but there is a lot to like in the 2008. Today the 2008 is showing beautifully. In magnum, the 2008 can be enjoyed today or cellared up to another 20 years or so. If opened young, the 2008 needs a few hours of air to soften. The bright, floral, spiced finish suggests a long life ahead. (AG)" (11/2013) 94 points James Suckling: "Fabulous roses, currants and dark berries on the nose that go to currants ...Read More »

2008 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "SLV" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "An awesome Cabernet, so elegant, powerful and refined. As softly attractive as it is, it has a reserve of power that should enable it to age effortlessly. Ripe, sweet tannins house exorbitant flavors of blackberries and cassis, accented with new oak. It makes for a full-bodied, showy 100% Cabernet, drinkable now and over the next 15 years." (4/2012) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon SLV Estate emerges from the glass with dark plums, black cherries, smoke, licorice and tar as well as terrific intensity and depth.

2008 Shafer "Hillside Select" Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon

96 points James Suckling: "I can't wait to taste this in bottle. Bright fruit, with currants and plums on the nose. A powerful and structured palate, with plenty of tannins and a long flavorful finish. This is precise, a combination of the 2006 and 2007. Barrel sample."

2008 Araujo "Altagracia" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are 400 cases of the 2008 Altagracia, which includes a lot of Petit Verdot (20%) in the Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated blend. The year’s spring frosts resulted in a smaller crop than usual resulting in a denser, richer but at the same time more texturally interesting and seductive style of wine. Its deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by lots of blue, red and black fruits as well as good minerality, purity and depth. It should drink well for 10-15 years. (RP)" (12/2010) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good bright red-ruby. Enticing, nuanced aromas of black cherry, licorice, graphit ...Read More »

2008 Vineyard 29 "29 Estate" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

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+ points.

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 Duckhorn "The Discussion" Napa Valley Red Wine

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is by far the most expensive of Duckhorn’s new releases, but it’s not the best to drink now. Based on Cabernet Sauvignon, it’s easy to imagine the winemaker singling out the most tannic and concentrated lots, but what you get is, simply, a very tannic wine. There’s a gigantic core of blackberry and black currant fruit, but it’s hard to appreciate because of the astringency. The suggestion is longterm aging, but there can be no guarantees. Cellar Selection." (10/2012) K&L Notes: Best of the Best: that's what the 2008 "Discussion" is all about. A Bordeaux-style bl... Read More »

2008 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "Fay" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Back In Stock!
2008 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "Fay" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

From the vineyard that started it all for Stag's Leap Wine Cellars' founder, Warren Winiarski. Known for its floral perfume and red fruit, the 2008 version doesn't disappoint. It has an alluring cherry and violet-scented nose that broadens and turns plummy on the palate, with more cherry fruit, sweet mulch and vanilla spice. Fine-grained tannins add texture to the wine, which is the most feminine of the three Stag's Leap Wine Cellars' bottlings.

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2008 Scarecrow Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (OWC - 99JS, 96WS, 94ST, 93RP) in original wood. James Suckling: "Like listening to cool mellow rock 'n' roll. 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.

Bid on this bottle of 2008 Scarecrow "M. Étain" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon in original wood. The inaugural vintage of Scarecrow's "second label" wine, M. Étain comes from a less rigorous selection of fruit hand-picked from the J.J. Cohn Estate in Rutherford. The wine is cleverly named after the Tin Man from Wizard of Oz, "Étain" being French for "Tin." Pretty cherry, raspberry and plum fruit notes on the nose and palate are deftly interwoven with cookie spices, cigar box, coffee, licorice, chocolate and vanilla bean. Silky tannins make this approachable now.

It gets a bit ragged in the latter going but never so much so that aging will not fix, and, while not a wine we would pour tonight, we see very good things ahead some four to six years down the line."

Voluptuous and sweet, but not heavy; this saturates every square millimeter of the palate. Almost painful intensity to the wave of fruits and minerals.

The 2008 is the second vintage from this small cult production. From winemaker Mike Smith: "2008's growing season allowed us to produce a wine with great ripeness coupled with intense flavors and smooth textures. Immediately noticeable are the intense dark ruby hues and soaring aromas of dark red fruits, minerality and subtle barrel spice. When swirled in the glass, there is a sense of great viscosity coming from this brooding wine as it releases even more complex layers of dark and red fruits such as sugar plums, blackberries and pure cassis.
