B.R.COHN Cabernet Silver 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 Silver Label Cabernet Sauvignon reflects a blending of grapes grown from the B.R. Cohn Olive Hill Estate Vineyards and select North Coast Cabernet vineyards. This combination offers full, rich flavors of berry, cassis and black cherry with hints of vanilla in the background. Aging with French oak adds complexity and depth, resulting in a high quality Cabernet Sauvignon with great value. I hope you enjoy this wine as much as my family and I do.

As good as North Coast-appellation Cabs get, this one is very dry, tannic and fleshy, with good varietal character and a rich, full-bodied mouthful of blackberries, cherries, plums and coffee. Drink now.

This combination offers full, rich flavors of berry, cassis and black cherry with hints of vanilla in the background. Aging with French oak adds complexity and depth, resulting in a high quality Cabernet Sauvignon with great value.

This wine offers a complex, narrow band of spicy currant, black cherry and wild berry, well-focused and concentrated if on a modest scale. Drink now through 2009.

A Sonoma Cab with elegant cassis and black cherry fruit and rich vanilla overtones from aging in French oak.

Trim and focused, with spice, dill, cedar, black cherry and plum flavors. Full-bodied and elegant, ending with delicate fruit and cedar notes. Drink now through 2016.

This full bodied, fruit-forward Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful ensemble of black currant, spice and vanilla with an oak backbone. It is aged in French oak, which adds a tasty cinnamon component. Founded by Bruce Cohn, the manager of the famed Doobie Brothers, this winery has received numerous accolades for its consistent quality and high wine ratings. It is music to your mouth, found in every fine dining restaurant from here to California. Fabulous on its own; however, it pairs nicely with steak, venison, buffalo or heavy tapas.
