The 2008 State Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon offers vibrant aromas of fruit and a rich mouthful of black cherry and berry. A toasty component from the oak complements the abundant fruit and offers a slight cigar quality. There is a firmer core to this wine, but the vintage s tannins are so supple and fine that they are quite polished.
WS 90pts, WA 90pts - Winemaker Notes - The 2007 State Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of black cherry and loganberry that are enticing, but it is the velvety palate and the juiciness of this wine that seems to define the vineyard. There is softness and a thickness to the texture that is pure enjoyment that carries through to an extremely long finish.
