Additional Information

The vintage was marked by low yields but, ultimately, moderate temperatures during harvest (following an earlier heat spike) allowed optimum hang time and outstanding quality with balance and structure. Currant, black licorice, tobacco and graphite are followed by sexy cedary oak notes. Seamless and opulent across the palate with creamy yet vibrant dark fruit flavors with a long, lingering finish.

Hard to believe the price. A complete steal for $75
The 2008 Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon from Cameron Hughes is a wonderful example of what a Cabernet should be. As I'm working my way back through the vintages of this wine the only year I've encountered that I prefer to the 2008 is the 2009, and that only slightly. When I uncorked the bottle I immediately was confronted by a delightful dark fruit aroma, an aroma that remained when I poured a glass about an hour later. Like the 2009, the 2008 has a silky smoothness about it that lasts from the when the wine hits the tip of the tongue until it's swallowed. Tannins are quite muted in this vintage, while blackberry and a bit of licorice comes to the fore and fill the mouth with a most pleasurable taste. I also detected just a hint of oak. Like a good wine should, the taste of this 2008 Cabernet remains well after it's swallowed.

This wine is good enough to thoroughly enjoy by itself. However, it is also enhanced with beef, perhaps a savory roast or possibly a steak. It... Read more
More pronounced fruit on the nose and in the palate than the 2007. Softer tannins, more integrated than the 06 and 07. Smoother, cleaner, still big. Blackberries and blueberry pie. Incredible finish. One of my favorites from the vertical box set. As with all wines of this calibre, decant for a few hours. The producers took their time to create a work of art for your palate. You owe it to them to taste it as it was meant to be. Stunning.
