Tasting Notes

WA95

Composed of 82.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and the rest tiny dollops of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, the 2008 Paradise Hills Vineyard Proprietary Red has added considerable richness, weight, texture, nuance and complexity over the last year. Aromas of chocolate, espresso, blackberries, black currants and charcoal/burning embers leads to a full-bodied, expressive, rich wine that is nearly as compelling as the 2007. Dense, full-bodied and already drinkable, it should evolve for 20+ years. Rating: 95+

JS91

This is really juicy on the nose with an explosion of red fruits, such as prunes and cherries. It's a little jammy on the palate, but round and rich. Lots of spicy, vanilla and toasted oak on the finish. A little hot. Best after 2014.
