Deep red in color, with concentrated ripe black fruit aromas intertwined with leather, chocolate and graphite in a perfect balance. Dense with soft tannins and a sweet aftertaste. Persistent chocolate and dried fruit flavors on the lingering finish.
Wine Advocate 88 points - In comparison, the 2008 Terrunyo Cabernet Sauvignon has a little more New World opulence on the nose with the 80% new oak adding gloss. The palate is medium-bodied with a spicy, vigorous entry and supple tannins. It builds nicely in the mouth towards a weighty finish of raspberry, blackberry, leather and spice. This probably just has the edge of the 2009 at the moment. Drink now-2016. (Dec 2012)
