95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2008

($125; 63% cabernet sauvignon, 20% petit verdot and 17% merlot, all from the Figgins family's Upland Vineyard, which climbs to an altitude of 1,600 feet) Bright ruby-red.

The pH here is 3.65, whereas the '06 cabernets are more like 3.8. From a crop level of about 2.2 tons per acre, according to Chris Figgins.
