Clark-Claudon Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is an attractive wine laced with sweet grilled herbs, dark cherries, plums, espresso and tobacco. It shows plenty of nuance and delineation. The mid-weight structure suggests it is best enjoyed over the next handful of years. The 2008 spent two years in French oak, 65% new. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018. Vintage 2008 was not an easy one for Clark-Caudon. The estate lost 50% of their crop during the spring frost. The resulting wine, though, is fabulous.
