Jack London Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

The 2008 vintage had a relatively small crop and weather that began with a dry spring, followed by a mild summer. The fruit was harvested at the peak of ripeness in late September and early October. After fermentation, the young wine was pressed and settled before being placed in barrels for ageing. The resulting wine has rich mouthfeel as well as powerful aromatics and fruit flavors. Delicious now, this Cabernet will continue to develop and improve for at least a decade.

Winemakers Notes

Complex aromas of cassis, black tea, mint and olive combine with well-structured tannins that provide an excellent mouthfeel and a lingering finish.
