Wine Profile
Vintage: 2008
Wine Type: Red Wine
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
Appellation: Stags Leap District
Aging: 18 months in 50% new French Oak / 50% used French Oak
Fermentation: Fermented in stainless steel with variable skin contact time.
Alcohol %: 14.00%
Tasting Notes: The flavor is elegant and round as one should expect from Stags Leap District fruit. It also has a brightness in acidity which gives the finish both liveliness and length.
Vineyard Notes: Our 134-acre estate lies in the heart of the Stags Leap District, the first viticultural area in the United States to be approved based on the distinctiveness of its soils. With 28 distinctive vineyard blocks showing an array of different aspects, soil types, clones and rootstocks, our vineyard provides a diversity of flavors that are artfully blended to capture the holistic representation of our estate Cabernet Sauvignon.
Production Notes: The 2008 vintage brought us some early frost challenges but a beautiful warm growing season. Consequently the yields were low and the quality extraordinary. This was the warmest vintage of the decade second only to 2004. In contrast to the 2007 wines, there is a slightly more elegant structure and, though the wines have beautiful aromatics, this vintage carries with it more nuance and less flash.
