    A deep, dark beauty, the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Gravelly Meadow totally saturates the palate with the essence of blue and black fruit, cassis, bacon fat, mint, flowers and melted road tar. It is at once soft yet massively structured. At times, the 2008 is surprisingly approachable for a young wine from this estate, but then the Diamond Mountain tannins kick in, and it is a different story. Clean veins of minerality frame an insistent finish laced with tar, smoke and plenty of charred aromas and flavors. This dark, brooding beauty should be at its best between ages 15 and anyone's guess. Today, the Gravelly Meadow is the most complete of the 2008s. Anticipated maturity: 2023-2043.

    Engagingly complex, detailed, subtle and layered, offering a mix of plum, dark berry, mineral and cedar flavors. Dry around the edges, but very complete and expansive on the finish, where the flavors weave together.
