2008 Futo Oakville Bordeaux Blend (Previously $270)

SKU #1071473 96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Complex, ripe and alluring aromatics lead to a tight, firm, vivid mix of dark berry character, with blackberry, wild raspberry and currant. Medium- to full-bodied and remarkably elegant and refined on the palate. There's sufficient tannins, yet the acidity is crisp and refreshing. A stylish Cabernet. (JL) Inner quote mark (10/2011)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2008 Futo is a blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, which is slightly modified from the barrel sample I tasted last year. It reveals aromas of blueberries, raspberries, crushed rocks, graphite, black currants and forest floor. The complex aromatics are followed by a wine displaying wonderful sweetness, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel and admirable depth and power as well as finesse. This deep, promising 2008 is already concentrated and approachable. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2010)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good ruby-red. Sexy aromas of crushed black raspberry, licorice pastille and smoked meat, lifted by a floral nuance. Big, ripe and highly concentrated, showing very good energy to the powerful, slightly aggressive black raspberry flavor. Almost too powerful today, with the strong tannins showing a faint dry edge. This seems to be shutting down in the bottle and is in an awkward stage today. (ST) 93+ Inner quote mark (6/2011)
