  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    Dark ruby-red. Ripe, inviting aromas of cassis, black raspberry, plum and brown spices. Rich, suave and sweet, with a lush texture to the flavors of plum, forest floor and aromatic herbs. Finishes with broad, supple tannins that will not get in the way of enjoying this wine in its youth. The Phillips family began farming these vines on the western side of Oakville in 1959 and previously sold their grapes to such producers as Cakebread, Beaulieu Vineyard, Etude and Mondavi. (The Bond Vecina wine is from this estate as well.) Beginning with 2008, the winery peeled off a one-acre block of each of its vineyards to make wine under its own label.

    The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep, powerful wine laced with dark plums, spices, licorice and tar, all of which come together gracefully in the glass. A long, long finish adds to an impression of great balance and sheer pedigree.
