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.

2008 Iron Horse Green Valley of Russian River Valley Brut Rosé Sparkling Wine

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Brut Rosé is a blend of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay aged at least four years on the yeast before being disgorged. With strawberries and framboise, this is a delicious, sexy and beautifully light-salmon/pinkish colored sparkling wine with good body, loads of fruit, and plenty of effervescence. In many ways is my favorite, and I am sure it is among the winery’s most popular. Drink it over the next several years.

2008 Opus One Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

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.

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.

Quite dry and fresh-in fact, almost austere-with a lightly mineral, steely character to the flavors of apple, pear, citrus peel and dried herbs. Boasts very good density of texture and flavor intensity. Hold this for at least a few years before pulling the cork."

Impeccable in structure, with refined tannins that are soft and firm at the same time, and a fine cut of acidity. Entirely dry, the Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend is awesome in blackberry, cherry, cassis and oak flavors, with complexities of anise, soy sauce, grilled meats and minerals. Beyond the particulars, it just feels dramatic and rich in the mouth. A great wine that should develop in the bottle over the next decade."

Gorgeous inner perfume and a super-refined personality are some of the qualities found in the 2008 Maiden. A weightless, subtle finish rounds things out nicely.

Yields were down a full 50%. In exchange, nature rewarded Dunn with the fruit to make an epic wine that could very well turn out to be a modern-day legend. The 2008 is a huge, towering wine packed with dark fruit, licorice, tar, asphalt and licorice. Layers of perfume are woven throughout this majestic effort.

Tobacco, leather, mint and spices are woven together in this large-scaled Grenache. There is plenty of intensity here, but the 2008 has just a touch less aromatic definition than the very finest wines at Sine Qua Non.

A blend of 90.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9.5% Petit Verdot, it was cropped very low and, sadly, the production is a tiny 475 cases (30-40% less than normal).

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 Keating "Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard" Napa Cabernet Sauvignon

2008 12C "Georges III Vineyard" Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

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.

2008 Pine Ridge "Fortis" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The flagship 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Fortis has an opaque ruby/purple color and gorgeously sweet, concentrated black currant fruit with sweet cherry, plum, Asian spice, and some subtle oak.

2008 Dana Estates "Lotus Vineyard" Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon (1.5L)

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.

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon flows with layers of mint, violet, black berries and minerals, showing gorgeous delineation and nuance. This vibrant, crystalline Cabernet Sauvignon impresses for its exceptional overall balance and total sense of finesse.

Firm, complex and layered, with wild berry, plum and cherry flavors that are elegant and layered, ending with a spicy, floral berry aftertaste. (JL)" (10/2011) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright medium ruby. Blackberry, violet ...Read More »

Bid on this 1.5 liter 1-bottle lot of 2008 Kapcsandy Family "State Lane Vineyard - Roberta's Reserve" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (1.5L) (99RP, 96JS, 96ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Roberta’s Reserve State Lane Vineyard (96% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc) is virtually perfect. This offering is just as strong as the 2007, but slightly more forward and irresistible than the backward 2007. It boasts a dense inky/purple color as well as an extraordinary nose of blackberry liqueur intermixed with cocoa, forest floor, graphite and subtle hints of smoke as well as camphor.
