"The bouquet of the 2008 Reserve opens with waves of currant, dark fruits and spices. On the palate it is rich, dense, smooth and focused. The tannins are sweet, seamless and accompanied by opulent, fresh black fruits. The wine can be enjoyed young or for the next 10 - 15 years." -winemaker
"A dramatic upgrade, the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve exhibits aromas of creme de cassis, burning embers, licorice and smoked herbs. It ratchets up the body, concentration and depth yet possesses silky smooth tannins and a forward style. This beauty should drink well for 15+ years." -Robert Parker

"Good medium ruby. Aromas of dark cherry, smoke, graphite and rocky minerality, lifted by a violet top note. Juicy, spicy and sharply delineated, with lovely floral lift contributing to the impression of clarity and giving the wine a light touch. A nicely broad midweight with captivating floral perfume and fine-grained but firm tannins. Snowden told me that at first she thought the 2008s were a lot like the 2006s-i.e., wines from tiny berries that were tannic and tightly wound in the early going. "But now I think that '08 will be a nice early drinker, without quite the same structure or richness as 2007." I liked this wine's aromatic lift and refinement." -Stephen Tanzer
