2008 Rosella's Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

> Lookup on Cellar Tracker

Though still quite young this opaque, dense Cabernet is quite drinkable.  The nose is huge, black fruit, loam, bing cherry with hints of box wood, leather and tobacco.  This wine is being tasted at 64 degrees slightly below room temperature.  On the palate this is a full bodied wine with a big fruit and round mouth filling glycerin.  The finish is a smooth tannin with both length and suppleness.  There is a great complexity of layers in this Cabernet each taste will reveal a different facet.  Make sure you get more than on bottle.  If you had the 2006 from Rosella’s this is even better and it will get even better over the next 5 years in the bottle.

Score: 93
Cost: $ 28
Wine Type: Cabernet Sauvignon, Southern Oregon, Rogue Valley, Applegate Valley
