Sourced from a smorgasbord of AVAs, this well-crafted Cabernet includes small percentages of Merlot and Cab Franc. Hard, tight and firmly grounded in cassis and black fruits, it melds in streaks of mineral, graphite and a hint of herb.

The Tamarack 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is scented with pungent black tea and cedar; cassis, boysenberry and black tea. Seamlessly ripe and infectiously juicy dark berry fruit lasts into a succulently-lingering, subtly smoky, and mouthwateringly salt-tinged finish. Like other wines in this series, a clue to its quality can be found in the roster of sites whose fruit informed it, which — since it is in this instance so large and star-studded — I offer for your inspection: Bacchus, Ciel du Cheval, Dionysus, DuBrul, Seven Hills, Tapteil, and Weinbau.
