Brookdale Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2008
Violet purple in color, dark purple fruit, light but pleasing nose. The tasting notes suggested “Drink now (because it’s too delicious not to) or age for up to 7 years in a cool cellar." To me, this wine has evolved nicely (after a disappointing experience with my first bottle 6 months ago). This one needs decanting (at least 1 hour), the end result will be at least worth 90 points.Add winemaker's notes

Extremely Limited!!The 2004 sold out in a matter of days. Since then our customers have been patiently waiting for the 2005, and it's finally here! Brookdale Vineyards Cabernet is a limited production wine made with hand-selected grapes from some of Napa Valley’s finest vineyard sites. This 2005 is the second vintage Brookdale Cab to use grapes from their Three Daisies vineyard on the Silverado trail. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in French oak for 18 months. Less than 500 cases were produced so we are very excited to get our hands on a very few of them. This is a beautifully approachable wine with a dense core of fruit and complex intermingling of cassis, vanilla, cherry and cocoa. On sale for a short time and Extremely Limited!

The aromas are dominated initially by black currant and black cherry which give way to cherry and slight raspberry with time in the glass. Side notes of cedar, vanilla and rose petals. The entry is full and round supported by fine and medium grain tannins. The balance is impeccable and the finish is long and intense.
This wine color is a deep ruby-red hue, which is saturated to the rim. The flavors consist of red and black cherries, violets, anise, cola nut, cedar and toasty oak – YUM! It has full entry with firm, yet round and balanced tannins that support the middle palate and finish. The acidity enlivens the wine which makes it an excellent match for food. This wine will age nicely for 8-10 years.
