Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 92

The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature is a gorgeous, mid-weight wine laced with sweet dark plums, black cherries, menthol, tobacco and flowers. This gracious Cabernet Sauvignon-based red possesses lovely balance in an understated style. It should drink well for the next 5-7 years, perhaps longer. In the 2008 the blend is 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Malbec, 9% Merlot and 5% Petite Verdot.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 91

Offers a complex mix of cedar, dried currant, pencil shavings and mineral flavors in a full-bodied style. A firm and tannic wine, ending with drying tannins. Drink now through 2022. 8,125 cases made.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
