2008 Rhys "Family Farm Vineyard" San Mateo County Pinot Noir

92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "*Outstanding* An attractively layered and fresh ripe red berry fruit and overtly floral nose offers excellent complexity that continues onto the rich but elegantly rendered medium-bodied flavors that possess a seductive texture and perfect balance on the lingering finish. This should age extremely well as everything is in perfect proportion...That the wines are of very high quality is evident but what is wonderfully refreshing is that the wines are also unique and original. Simply put, they are unlike any other pinots being crafted in California today. ...Read More »

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 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 Orin Swift "Papillon" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

91 points Wine Spectator: "Fragrant, ripe and grapey, with floral berry, plum and blackberry jam notes. 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 »

Velvety, layered and intense, with a seamless texture to the sweet red berry and exotic floral flavors. The fruit becomes spicier on the sharply focused, impressively long finish. Very sexy, and balanced to age. (ST)" (5/2010)

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 Brewer-Clifton "Sweeney Canyon" Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 continues the trend of rating all the older Sweeney Canyon Chardonnays higher than I did early in their lives. That’s an indication of great winemaking from a spectacular site. The age old argument of whether a Chardonnay improves in the bottle is answered positively by how the wines in this vertical have performed. The 2008 Chardonnay displays a French style with lots of white corn, white peach, honeysuckle, wet rock and spice characteristics. Tropical fruit notes appear on the palate, and there is enough acidity to support and delineate the wi ...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 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 »

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".

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 »

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Proprietary Red Wine blend (essentially a Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated wine with Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Malbec blended in) has a more opaque/purple color. With more graphite, blueberry and lilac notes, sweet tannin, medium to full body, and an elegant, gracious feel, it is more restrained than previous examples but has no shortage of richness and concentration. It looks to be a beauty in a Bordeaux style, with sweet tannins but loads of fruit--unmistakably California but French in structure. Drink it over the next 15+ years. ...Read More »

The wine exhibits sweet black cherry, raspberry, and black currant fruit intermixed with notions of camphor, incense, licorice, and subtle background oak. Full-bodied, juicy, seductive, and nearly addictive, this intriguing Syrah should be drunk over the next 7-8 years. (RP)" (8/2010) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky ruby.

Full-bodied, with ripe pear, melon, honeysuckle and mineral notes, ending with a rich, fleshy finish. Drink now through 2014." (4/2010) Connoisseurs Guide: "A very pleasant, youthful and still developing Chardonnay, this wine smells of pears, citrus fruits and green apples compounded by a veneer of creamy oak. It is full in body and somewhat round at entry, then firms up appropriately across the palate and finds unresolved finishing raggedness in the finish.

Lush, seductively sweet black raspberry and cherry flavors stain the palate, picking up peppery spice and smoky mineral qualities with aeration. The gripping finish strongly echoes the cherry note and clings tenaciously. Shows surprising vivacity and clarity for its power; this is really promising." (5/2010)

2008 Ridge Vineyards "Monte Bello" Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon (375ml)

97 points 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 t ...Read More »

2008 Wind Gap "Yuen-James Berry & Brosseau Vineyards" Central Coast Chardonnay

A wine of exceptional intensity, minerality, and richness, it was aged in new concrete eggs and saw no wood whatsoever. This beauty can be enjoyed over the next 4-5 years." (02/10)

It is ripe but never overly so, and it is structured without being stiff. Its keen balance and slightly velvety feel are the signature traits of thoughtfully made Pinot, and its wonderful sense of depth earns it a place with the very best of the 2008 class. *Two Stars*" (10/2010) 94 points Wine Spectator: "This dense red exhibits cola, sassafras, ripe plum and wild berry flavors, ending wi ...Read More »

Better that one should measure this one by its gorgeous, focused, deep and balanced character because this is a refined, complex effort with layers and layers of on-point attractions.

Pierre Seillan believes the Chalk Hill fruit provides a truffle-like character and the Alexander Valley gives minerality, structure, tannin and intensity. The 2008 will be fascinating to taste next to the 2007 over the next 30+ years.

Still young and unformed, it exhibits phenomenal richness and equilibrium as well as a finish that lasts nearly a minute. Its dense plum/purple color is accompanied by notions of black fruits, forest floor, truffles and spring flowers. It should age for 25-30+ years.
