Carter Cellars Revilo Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

This vineyard sits within a stone’s throw of some very well known St. Helena vineyards and it shows why with an immediate attack of the senses. A dark ruby color leads a nose that is full and rich with dark fruit galore soaring from the glass alongside a slight earthiness and hints of pie crust. On the palate the above notes are covered in a velvety texture and subtle oak overtones from fine French barrels. Full bodied and muscular but amazingly fine tannins glide the fruit, spice and leather undertones through a powerful rich finish that last for minutes. Definitely a candidate for the cellars - look for this wine to smooth out and integrate within 2-3 years and provide immense pleasure for 10 years and beyond.
