92.1 points


93 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): "(99% cabernet sauvignon and 1% petit verdot): Good bright, deep ruby. Captivating aromas of cassis, licorice and graphite. Suave and vibrant, with lovely definition to the flavors of cassis, violet, dark chocolate and minerals. Densely packed, very long wine with a serious structure for aging. Mostly from St. Helena fruit; the '07 version was mostly from Howell Mountain. Just 1,200 cases were bottled, the lowest total ever for this consistently outstanding cabernet. (May/Jun 2011)"

93 points Anthony Dias Blue (The Tasting Panel): "Lush and dense with dark plum and rich notes of oak, vanilla, tar and chocolate: ripe, full-bodied yet supple and elegant; rich, long and stylish with great aging potential. (Jan/Feb 2012)"

92 points Wine Spectator: "Patience required for this taut, dense, focused effort, with layers of mineral, cedar, dried berry, black licorice and espresso. Shows great structure and focus, yet this is very tight and backward now. Best from 2013 through 2023. (5/31/12)"

Producer notes: "The 2008 Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon shows youthful characters of fresh blackberry, black cherry and blueberry, and has bright characteristics of blackberry and blueberry aromas, accented by notes of toast, graphite, cedar and brown spices. The palette is rich and supple with seamless, mouth-coating tannins. The rich, juicy fruit core is highlighted by flavors of cassis, blackberry, sweet cocoa and a light savory note. A nice acidity lifts the fruit and carries it into a prolonged, pleasing finish. 98% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot. Alcohol 14.5%."
