WE 92 Pts. - Offers a blast of sweet red cherry candy flavor, accented with new oak notes of buttered toast and caramel. There’s no question this 100% Cabernet is delicious, but it’s also fiercely tannic. Makes the gums quiver. Should develop in the bottle over the next seven years. Cellar Selection.
Winemaker's Notes - The 2008 C.C. Ranch has many layers of flavors that are quite distinct. Dark cherry fruit with hints of violet mix with black tea and earth to lend an exotic character to the wine. The natural “Rutherford Dust” and toasty French oak complement the fruit. The silky entry gets fleshier as the fine tannins from this vintage build on the middle palate and progress into a long, smooth finish. Rated 90+
