2008 VELLUM Final Blend

Karl and I sampled the 2008 VELLUM Cabernet Sauvignon on Wednesday...

It still has a few weeks to go before bottling - - but this wine is a fantastic follow-up to our 2007 vintage.

Deep, rich color...over the top aromas of black currant and berries...

The tannins are so fine and so well-integrated that I feel this wine easily outdoes the 2007 vintage in early-age approachability.

The acid tightly structures the wine and provides an excellent framework.

And as always, the oak and alcohol are presented with restraint and finesse.

I am so proud of the 2008 VELLUM - you will absolutely love this wine!
