2008 Cabernet Sauvignon
2008 began with a cold winter, and a cool early spring with heavy rain storms. By mid-spring the rains stopped and weather warmed up nicely for bud-break. Summer was a little cooler than is typical, but heat in August and September matured the grapes beautifully, and the harvest was excellent. Our 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon, Knights Valley, has aromas of dark cherry, blackberry, sweet spices, and mocha. The flavors invoke the same, with a touch of black tea and dark chocolate on the finish. Drink over the next 3-5 years.
