2008 Parallel Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (750mL)

Winemaker Philippe Melka's Tasting Notes

"The record low rainfall and record of frost during spring contributed to small berries, low yields and an early harvest in 2008. The Parallel 2008, based on 89% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Merlot, is extremely charming with soft aromas of blueberry, sweet oak, caramel and fresh flowers. The wine is seductive by its soft texture, intense flavors of dried herbs, Asian spices, berries and sweet tannins."

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast

"Deep ruby black color, mocha, chocolate-covered nuts, raspberry, honey roasted carrots and graham cracker aromas with a satiny fruity yet dry medium-to-full body and a spicy cassis and mineral finish. A zesty flavorful Napa Cab."
