Very fine nose with lovely herbal and savory aromas accenting the sweet baking spice nose that is slightly cool and compressed. There is lovely balance on the palate, with real richness of ripe fruit, and no baby fat which the 2007 still retains. The feeling here is cool and pretty Cabernet fruit, bringing along that suggestion of herbaceousness from the nose, as it yields to a ripe fruit-driven finish. Needs a bit of time but this has everything in the right place. 92pts

Very fine on the nose, with an early sweet baking spice note followed by crisp blackcurrant fruit, lovely dried herb and almost floral nuances. On the palate, this is a bit reserved with a slightly cool and compressed feel, but lovely balance that shows real richness of ripe fruit. There’s no baby fat here, it’s all sleek, cool and pretty Cabernet fruit in the black cherry/blackcurrant end of the register, bringing a suggestion of herbaceousness to the moderately long finish. 91 points

Sweet oak on the nose, but is a touch green. Aromas of mint and eucalyptus with red and black fruit. Big acid, giving nice vibrancy on the palate. Red and black fruit. Rich flavor and nice sweet oak accents. Touch of green herbs. Suggestions of mint and eucalyptus as well. Nice. 88 pts. 5/10/13

This Cab shows rich, ripe fleshy tannins. wonderful fruit on the mouth with beautiful black fruit and tabacco and saddle. the Cabernet finishes long with balanced tannins and great cedar that finishes dry. I serve it by the glass at The Capital Grille in Costa Mesa, Ca. and it pairs great with the Porchini Rubbed Delmonico.

Dark, rich and extracted, this wine has aromas of cassis, black cherry and currants. Balanced oak nuances add both a sweetness and roundness to this aromatic and powerful wine. Extraordinarily complex, while amazingly rich and smooth in the mouth, this wine offers superb richness and balance, and builds in intensity.

The provocative 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate exhibits a spicy bouquet that suggests black currants, cherries, cinnamon and Christmas fruitcake. This elegant, medium-bodied Cabernet possesses light tannin, decent acidity and a fresh, graceful style. It should drink nicely for 7andndash;8 years.
