Winemaker Philippe Melka's Tasting Notes
"The recond 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."

"Delicious and compelling 100% Cabernet from this great vintage. Shows classically developed, sweet Napa tannins and wonderfully ripe fruit. As expressive as the blackberries and currants are, they're reined in with minerals and herbs to produce exquisite tension. Best now, with a good decant, and should develop for years."
**This gorgeous bottle has an etched, hand-painted front label, a wax capsule, and ships in a 2008 vintage wood box. Just 13 available!**
