Wine Advocate | 98
One of the few wineries to make a 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve that eclipsed its 2007 counterpart is Anderson's Conn Valley. A spectacular effort that is as black as a moonless night, this full-bodied wine boasts abundant aromas of creme de cassis, camphor and subtle oak presented in a voluptuously textured, full-bodied style with terrific richness and depth. Great intensity and opulence as well as a layered mouthfeel make for a remarkable wine that should age for 20-30+ years.

Had a fig component going on which wasn't very pleasant ... hope some bot age helps next bot
OMG is this good juice. Fantastic out of the bottle. Big nose of mushroom and cedar. Refined tannins, smooth finish. I only wish I had more. A truly outstanding bottle of wine!
I like to drink red wines young. Occaisionally, this requires me to plead guilty of opening a bottle too soon. Not so with this wine. It is ready to drink now. This is a Bordeaux blend that is virtually opaque. It has a nose and flavor of blackberries and black cherries. Very well balanced with smooth tannins. Robert Parker rates it 98 but I usually find his ratings too high. This is no exception. This is an outstanding wine but it is not a 98.
