Vineyard 29 Cabernet Sauvignon Aida Estate 2008
Item #: 893288
Description: From the 16-acre Aida Vineyard (a valley floor site with lots of stones and boulders as well as the famed black obsidian rocks), the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Aida Vineyard Estate (85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot and 6% Merlot aged for 20 months in 3/4`s new French oak casks) exhibits plenty of earthy, chocolaty notes intertwined with hints of burning embers, camphor and spice. Thick, juicy and very Graves-like for a Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, it possesses big body as well as a masculine, bold style. Some tannins kick in in the finish, and this wine will benefit from 3-4 years of bottle age. It should keep for two decades or more. I love this terroir for its distinctive Graves-like character.
