2008 Ramey Pedregal Vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #500501
The fourth vintage from this small, outstanding vineyard on the lower slopes of the eastern Oakville hills. “Pedregal” indicates stones in Spanish, and that is certainly a distinguishing feature of the site.

ROBERT PARKER RATING: 96+
ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: Another superstar in the making is the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Pedregal (a blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon and 16% Petit Verdot). The finest of these 2008s, it reveals greater richness, texture, length, and volume than its siblings as well as a singular purity and character. This high-class Cabernet should drink well for two decades or more.
STEVE TANZAR RATING: 92 - 94
STEVE TANZAR REVIEW: Glass-staining ruby. Spicy, intensely perfumed cherry, blackberry and dried flowers on the nose, with a hint of vanilla adding complexity. Juicy and deeply concentrated dark berry flavors are firmed by chewy tannins and pick up notes of licorice and chewing tobacco with air. The finish clings with real grip and leaves smoke and spice notes in its wake. Showing a lot of power today and clearly a wine for the long haul.
Our fifth vintage from this small, outstanding vineyard on the lower slopes of the eastern Oakville hills. “Pedregal” means a rocky place in Spanish, and that is certainly a distinguishing feature of the site. During 2008 we agreed to a long-term lease of this vineyard which gives us complete control even through any change in ownership, so this is the first vintage we’ve directed farming ourselves (we converted to organic). Aging the 2008 on its fine lees has coated the tannins and smoothly integrated the wood, and we left this vintage 26 months in completely new barrels - yet it’s hard to find the oak. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot (16%) were harvested in two passes two days apart and co-fermented. As with all of our wines, this was fermented with native yeasts and bacteria and bottled without filtration. -Winery
