Buccella Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

95 points Robert Parker: The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon, which comes from multiple fruit sources in Rutherford, Oakville, Yountville, Coombsville, Oak Knoll and Carneros, was aged in 100% new French oak... it exhibits an opaque purple color, great intensity and a sweet nose of blue and black fruits intermixed with toasty oak, lead pencil shavings and forest floor. Rich, layered and full-bodied with silky tannins, this broad, savory 2008 should drink well for 15 or more years. (Dec 2010) Cabernet Sauvignon 95%, Cabernet Franc 2%, Malbec 2%, Petit Verdot 1%. 1,185 cases produced.
