2008 Laura Zahtila Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon, Calistoga, Napa Valley 750ml
This is the second release from the Barlow Vineyard, south of Zahtila by about 2 miles. The color profile is a gorgeous ruby red while the nose is dominated by dark ripe fruits with a hint of tobacco – plus raspberry, Bing cherry and dark chocolate. Full bodied with rich, chewy tannins that will open up with decanting to drink now or will age well in your cellar.
