Araujo Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard 2008, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon from Calistoga, California

"The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard is breathtaking. Everything is in the right place in this dazzling, superb Cabernet Sauvignon. Layers of dark fruit, plums, camphor, licorice and espresso emerge from this effortless, gracious wine. The integration of fruit, tannin and French oak (100% new) is simply phenomenal. There is a dark, brooding quality to the 2008 that is immensely appealing. This is a stunning wine from Araujo." 97+ Points Antonio Galloni

Finishes with smooth tannins and excellent persistence." 92 Points Stephen Tanzer

Joseph Phelps Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2008, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, California

"...Their 1975 Cabernet Sauvignon is still alive at age 35. The 2008's dense ruby/purple color is followed by an attractive bouquet of creme de cassis and charcoal. Revealing full-bodied richness and lots of depth, it is one of the finest regular Cabernet Sauvignons Phelps has made in many years. The tannins have sweetened over the last year and this impressively endowed effort, while approachable now, should age for 20+ years." 90 Points Wine Advocate

Joseph Phelps Insignia 2008, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot / Petit Verdot from Napa Valley, California

"The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Insignia is a towering, statuesque wine bursting with blackberry jam, tar, spices, leather and licorice. It shows fabulous depth and richness backed up by serious, imposing tannins that suggest it has a long life. Ideally, the 2008 should be purchased by those who can be patient; it is not a wine for those seeking immediate gratification. The blend is 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot and 4% Malbec." 97 Points Antonio Galloni

Schrader Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard GIII 2008, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon from Rutherford, California

"The 2008s were bottled in early summer, 2010. From the Beckstoffer Vineyard, the opaque blue/purple-colored 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon George III Clone 337 rocks out of the glass with brilliant aromas of creme de cassis, Christmas fruitcake, cedarwood, licorice and incense. The wine is deep, full-bodied, dense and concentrated with outstanding purity, texture and length. It is approachable now (one of the seductive characteristics of these wines) yet is capable of lasting . . ." 97 Points Robert M. Parker Jr.

Schrader Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard T6 2008, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon from Oakville, California

"The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon T6 (Clone 6) could be given a perfect score, it’s that special. All of this is like splitting hairs, but this opaque purple-colored wine offers up lavish, luxurious notes of blueberries, black raspberries, black currants, licorice, cedar and grilled herbs. Extremely dense and opulent with a voluptuous texture, it has layer upon layer of fruit and depth, and a mindboggling finish that had me shaking my head in awe. Sadly, this amazing wine has the most limited production of all the Schrader wines, 150 cases." 99 Points Robert M. Parker Jr.
