2008 Nickel & Nickel "Kelham Vineyard" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1199976 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Kelham Vineyard shows off gorgeous dark fruit and a radiant, expressive personality. Hints of smoke, licorice and tar develop in the glass, adding considerable complexity to the racy dark fruit and the supple finish. This is a gorgeous, inviting Cabernet that will drink beautifully for a number of years. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2028. (AG)  (12/2011)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Deep bright ruby, darker than the 2007. Tight and pure on the nose, with lovely floral cut and lift to the aromas of black cherry and dusty cocoa. Not as expansive on the palate as the 2007 but this is floral, juicy and tight, showing a higher pitche to its black fruit flavors. Best today on the back end, which features dusty tannins and excellent brisk length. Very different in style than the plusher 2007. (ST)  (5/2011)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

 Drink this with rich, fatty steaks and chops to cut through the tannins, which are considerable. Right out of the bottle, the wine is drily astringent. But there’s a rich core of blackberries, cherries and cherry liqueur that makes the finish almost sweet. (SH)  (11/2011)

Jancis Robinson

 Minty nose, wild blackberry flavours are dense and tight, with anise, oak spice. Silky tannins are typical of Oakville Cab; lingering, refreshing finish. Harmonious despite the 14.9% alcohol. (LM)  (2/2011)

Wine Spectator

 Elegant and graceful in a restrained, understated style, with modest blackberry and currant flavors. Appealing for its subtle fruit notes and balance. Drink now through 2018. (JL, Web-2011)
