Tasting Notes


The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon 1886 is a beautifully delineated wine with expressive aromatics and plenty of nuances. Blackberries, Chambord, spices, white flowers and licorice are some of the notes that emerge from this generous, fruit-driven Cabernet Sauvignon. This feminine, graceful Cabernet Sauvignon should continue to drink well for a decade or so. In 2008 the blend is 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot, aged in French oak barrels, 70% new. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020.


A rich, dense, captivating style that serves up tiers of loamy earth, dried herb and currant, with black licorice, sage, cedar and mineral. Full-bodied, well-balanced and complex, with the flavors woven together on a chewy finish. Best from 2012 through 2021. 1,343 cases made.
