Vineyard 29 Aida Cabernet Sauvignon 2008


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Abundant aromas of dark chocolate, coffee grounds and burning embers lead into a palate of black cherry, crushed rock and a touch of smokiness. Bold in stature, this rich, masculine cabernet will benefit from decanting and can be enjoyed over the next 20+ years.

Wine AdvocateFrom 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
