The 2008 Vintage started off with a chill as a late frost swept thru wine country. Many of our neighbors down on the valley floor lost 20-40% of their crop. The good news is we had no frost damage at all. Due to our very steep site, south aspect, and 1200 foot elevation we have never experienced any frost damage. The defining attribute of our 2008 Flanagan Cabernet is balance. Cassis, blackberry, and graphite marry beautifully with nuances of vanilla and toasty mocha. This wine, like all of our wines, is a food wine and pairs compellingly with classic cabernet fare.
The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate boasts notable intensity and power from start to finish. Brooding and powerful, the 2008 emerges from the glass with black fruit, smoke, licorice, tar and earthiness. Today the 2008 comes across as a bit rough around the edges, especially with regards to the tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2023.
