2008 Joseph Phelps "Insignia" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (375ml)

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. (AG)" (12/2011) 95 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Once again, Insignia takes it accustomed place near the very head of the class, and, as usual, it is one of t ...Read More »

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 Ghost Block Estate Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate reveals greater delineation, power and structure than the regular bottling. Tobacco, sweet herbs, cassis and plums are some of the notes that flow from this beautifully delineated, striking Cabernet Sauvignon. I especially like the length and pure finesse of the finish. This is a strong showing from Ghost Block. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020. (AG)" (12/2011) 91 points Wine & Spirits: "The Pelissa family named this brand after the property they purchased in 1938, part of George Yount's original land grant.

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 »

It is full-bodied and very graceful, with superb equilibrium and intensity. This is a terrific, very young but very promising, prodigious Cabernet Sauvignon that should drink well for 20-25 years.

2008 Tor Kenward "Mast Vineyard" Yountville Cabernet Sauvignon

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Mast Vineyard possesses abundant aromas of black currants, cedar, licorice and roasted herbs, deep, medium to full-bodied power, supple tannins, loads of fruit and a dense, complete, upfront, delicious personality. This beauty can be enjoyed now and over the next 10-15+ years. It is easily the most forward of Kenward’s 2008 Cabernets. (RP)" (12/2010) 92 points Vinous: "(15.1% alcohol): Captivating aromas of raspberry, rose petal and tamarind.

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 Dana Estates "Lotus Vineyard" Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The flagship offering is the Lotus Vineyard cuvee. The 2007 was pure perfection and the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Lotus Vineyard is another impressive effort (about 200 cases produced). Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Clones 337, 4 and 15, this is a relatively high elevation (1,200 feet) site and because of that, the wine shows lots of minerality and freshness. Expansive black currant and blackberry notes intermixed with graphite and flower aromas are followed by a full-bodied wine with lots of structure, density and purity.

2008 Dominus Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made in a more masculine style, the 2008 Dominus has all of that along with bigger body and more structure, fat, density and texture. Both are brilliant wines and they represent the finest back-to-back vintages for Dominus since 2001 and 2002 or 1990 and 1991. Both the 2007 and 2008 Dominus should drink well for 25-30 years. (RP)" (12/2010) 95 points James Suckling: "This is very pure fruit for Dominus. This will be interesting to see how it develops in the future. 2008 was a very small crop.

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 Robert Mondavi Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

89 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa, Mondavi's least expensive Cabernet Sauvignon, is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and other grapes. It has a healthy deep ruby/purple color, with a pleasant nose of black fruits intermixed with hints of charcoal and spice, delicious, sweet fruit, medium body, and nice suppleness and flesh. Given that discounters will probably price this wine in the low twenties, this could be an outstanding bargain. It is no doubt a tribute to the talents of their director of winemaking, Genevieve Janssens. ...Read More »

2008 Orin Swift "Papillon" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

Full-bodied and intense, yet elegant and supple, with the tannins building on the finish, yet this ends on a fruity note. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Cabernet Franc." (11/2011) K&L Notes: This is the fourth vintage of Papillon from Orin Swift, the same Napa Valley winery that makes the ultra-popular wine, the Prisoner. Papillon is a Left Bank style Bordeaux blend, that combines 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, 3% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc from grapes grown on Howe... Read More »

2008 Frank Family Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points Wine Spectator: 'This supple-textured red shows ripe plum, cherry and currant notes that are open-knit and easy-drinking. Complex, if on a modest scale, ending with an elegant spice, cedar and light mineral edge. Drink now through 2018." (11/11) A generous Napa Valley Cab loaded with black cherry, bittersweet chocolate and spice aromas that carry over to the palate. There's even more fruit in the mouth, as the fleshes out to reveal plum and blackberry in addition to cherry, with a touch of mineral, plenty of spice and sweet, ripe tannins.

2008 Ridge "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2008 Ridge "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (97RP, 95JS, 95ST, 95W&S). 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. (AG) 97+" (08/2011)

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

2008 Schrader "Beckstoffer To Kalon - CCS" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "For some reason I have a sweet spot for Schrader’s 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon CCS, which, like the 2007, merits a perfect rating. That should set up some very interesting competitive tastings in the future. Made from a particular block of Clone 4 planted in the Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard, there is something just broader, deeper, more multidimensional and more subtle without losing any of the great intensity, purity and richness these wines possess that gives the CCS an amazing character.

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.
