V Madrone

2008 V Madrone Cabernet Sauvignon

2008 V Madrone Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting Notes:

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon that is true to the site and is immediately appealing with dark, brooding black fruits such as plum and blackberry compote as well as chocolate that has characterized recent V Madrone Cabernet vintages as vine maturity has shown through.  The entry is of sweet fruit, oak and grainy, fine tannins which are solid, but approachable. The 2008 Cabernet will pair with wood-grilled prime beef, aged cheeses and a dark Belgian chocolate-based dessert. This wine finishes long and intense and will age wonderfully over the next decade and thrive for another decade or more.
