Three Saints Cabernet Sauvignon Santa Ynez Valley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Cabernet begins with beautiful scents of chaparral, sage and blackberry that evoke a feel of rustic elegance. Your palette is then greeted with tones of rich earth, black pepper and flavors of ripe plum. The tannins create a supple yet full-bodied finish with lingering notes of chocolate and espresso.

Deep ruby color. Wonderful, almost Bordeaux-like aromas with blackcurrant, raspberry, bell pepper, violet, and hints of tobacco and chocolate. Medium to high acidity, medium to full body and intensity, and medium, rounded tannins. Blackcurrant, black pepper, plum, and chocolate on the palate. Well balanced and a good value at this price point.

Nice ripe plum on entry followed by alot of oak and chocolate. Too much chocolate on the finish for my tastes but over all a cabernet thats worth the money.

This is an intense ruby-colored Cabernet Sauvignon with lots of pulpy cassis fruit and dense chocolate on the nose and palate. The wine sees 20 months in oak, 40% of which is new. Truly a delicious wine and a stunning value.

The 2008 Three Saints Cabernet Sauvignon opens beautifully with scents of chaparral, sage and blackberry. Accentuated with hints of vanilla and coriander, this wine evokes a feel of rustic elegance. On the palette, one is greeted with tones of rich earth, black pepper and the flavors of ripe plum. The soft tannins provide a supple, yet full-bodied finish, with lingering notes of chocolate and espresso.
