Pabenger Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District Napa Valley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Passenger is a new project from wine broker/distributor Kimberly Jones and sommelier Chris Blanchard. This 100% Cabernet Sauvingon has beautiful, intense, dark ruby red color. This wine is all about balance. Balanced with a moderate alcohol level that is supported and absorbed by structure and concentration. Pretty, dark fruit, red and black, rich, without being overripe. Moderate oak that seems familiar, but not overwhelming, and barely noticeable, even after 18 months in 30% new and used top quality French oak. It finishes long with powerful fruit and structure, elegance and fine, integrated tannins. 102 cases produced.
