2008 Brenda's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
There is nothing demure and withdrawn about the 2008 Brenda’s Vineyard. This amazingly dark “can’t see the bottom of my glass” wine is full of aromas of black cherries, graphite (wet stone), and hints of sweet oak. The flavor profile is long and rich, highlighted by layers of mouth-watering ripe red fruits and oak tannins. The opulent structure of this wine makes it cellar-worthy through 2018 but hard to resist now in its youthful exuberance.
