Fisticuffs Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2008

Member Review by VegasOenophile:

I must confess, I prefer the 2007 vintage of this wine. This one has a tight nose even after 2 hours of breathing in bottle. Slight dill notes and jappy ripe berries on the nose once found. It starts out very earthy up front and then turns very sweet on the midpalate. Points for evolving, but it's a bit jarring of a transition. Very sweet fruit and tannins wrap it up.

Winemaker Tasting Notes - Fisticuffs elicits classic Napa Cabernet characteristics. Enticing aromas of Bing cherries, dark chocolate, spice and roasted espresso beans lead to a concentrated palate of blackberry and cassis. Ripe refined tannins provide a full bodied, lush mid-palate texture and a lingering finish noted with spice and black cherry. Very well balanced, this Cabernet should age over the next 10 years, but why wait Jeff and Carolyn Smith (Hourglass) have joined forces with Rob and Pavi Lawson (Napa Wine Co., Pavi) for this big, bold, fruit-forward Cabernet that offers gobs of berry fruit and plush tannins. A lot of wine for the money.
