Issue Issue 156

(15% alcohol): Good full ruby. Reticent but sexy aromas of blackberry, cassis, minerals, dark chocolate and violet, with a lightly liqueur-like character. Then creamy but not overly sweet on the palate, with attractive mineral and floral lift to the supple flavors of black raspberry and mocha. Strong fruit here, supported by a firm tannic spine.

The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Peterson Family Vineyard is a more long-distance runner that will require some patience from purchasers. A deep plum/ruby/purple color is followed by a tight but promising nose of forest floor, brooding red and black fruits and earth. Careful coaxing is required to help the nuances emerge. Full-bodied, with elevated but sweet tannins, this 2008 is still somewhat monolithic, but is rich and promising.

Drink Dates 2012-2021

An elegant, stylish wine, medium to full bodied, with a tight, firm, complex mix of black fruit, black licorice, cedar and floral scents, ending with supple, fine grain tannins. More refined than this typically is.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
