SOLUS – Vintage 2008

This is only our second release of a purely varietal Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine shows a lovely deep ruby color. The vineyard’s signature aromas and flavors of cherry and cassis dominate, while subtle notes of cedar, camphor, white pepper and pencil shavings round out the aromatics. The wine was aged entirely in French oak barrels, of which 20% were new barrels. A firm texture of natural acidity and sweet tannins balance out the intensity of the fruit on the palate, and encourage the notion that this wine will have a long life while developing and aging in the bottle.
