91 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2011

Glass-staining ruby.  Expressive aromas of cassis, licorice, violet and smoky minerals, complemented by subtle oak spice.  Creamy, broad, sweet and lush but with lively mid-palate energy giving lift to the dark berry and floral flavors.  Pliant and seamless cabernet, with firm supporting tannins adding shape and grip to the persistent finish.  Ramey told me that this wine was made completely from free-run juice.

Full body, seamless and silky texture that goes on and on. Ripe friut. Needs a 1 hour decant-minimum. There's enough structure to hold for 10-15 years.

WA 95 Pts. - According to the Wine Advocate: The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon impresses for its layers of dark, plush fruit. Hints of cassis, grilled herbs, tobacco and cedar develop in the glass, adding further complexity and depth. Firm tannins frame the long finish. This is a very classic and beautiful Cabernet. In 2008 the blend is 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot, sourced from a number of sites, including Somerston, DeSantis, Lamoreaux and Snowden. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2028

Cabernet Sauvignon

Here, in the district of Medoc, the varietal is the key component of blended wines that also may include some Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and even Malbec and Petit Verdot. Moving slightly south, Cabernet Sauvignon meets Merlot in roughly equal proportions in the red wines of Graves. In both of these Bordeaux regions, the top bottles...
