Regusci Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District 2008
Here comes 2008 at its best! Headily lush on the nose with deep black fruit - think cherry and blackberry - balanced with sweet floral notes, shavings of chocolate and subtle minerality.
The palette delights in rich, ripe, fat, rounded and juicy black and red currant fruit, smoky spices and softly tart tannins. A finish that unfolds into deepening layers of black current and engaging cassis, reminds us why we make wine. Pull the cork now or wait 8-10 years if you can! ~Winemaker, Charles Hendricks
