Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 192

Another candidate for perfection, the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Old Sparky comes from Clone 4, Clone 6 and Clone 337 although Clone 6 dominates the blend. Also a monumental wine, it is not as nuanced as the CCS or the RBS, but it possesses serious minerality as well as huge notes of tobacco leaf, pain grille, spring flowers, blueberries, blackberries, and licorice in both the aromatic and flavor profiles. The finish is endless in this super-intense, rich wine. Like all these wines, it is a 25- to 40-year effort although the sweetness of the tannin and the emerging complexity permits enjoyment even at this infantile stage.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Amazingly complex, exhibiting a seamless, sophisticated mix of ripe blueberry, currant and hard red candy flavors, with a firm, loamy earth foundation. Yet for all this delivers up front and from midpalate on, it's the finish that sets it apart, sailing along ever so gracefully.
