2008 Textbook Fin de Journée Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #500399
We call this Cabernet Sauvignon "Fin de journée" ("at the close of the day") to express when we most enjoy drinking it. We believe it is a "textbook" example of this noble variety grown in these outstanding appellations. It can be enjoyed for several years to come.

STEVE TANZAR REVIEW: Saturated ruby. Cherry, red- and blackcurrant and spices on the nose, with a hint of smoky minerals adding lift. Slightly wound-up on entry, unfolding to offer jammy dark berry flavors and very soft tannins.
The "Fin de journée" Cabernet Sauvignon comes from single vineyard sites located within the Oak Knoll, Yountville, Spring Mountain & Oakville District AVA's. Planted in the early 1990's these sites clonal material include Clones 4, 337 and others. The Oak Knoll and Yountville AVA's are cooler climates, have less rainfall and soils ranging from gravel to silty clay loams. These valley floor sites yield Cabernet Sauvignon with more structure and less flash than their warmer region brethren, and with a decidedly Bordelaise sensibility, witness some neighboring wines from Dominus and Grgich Cellars. The Spring Mountain site delivered great color, aromatics and high quality grape tannins. Oakville District, well, it is just plain special: dense, deep - with great acidity.
