Lindstrom Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Out of stock

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

The aromas of the Lindstrom 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon display an intensity of very focused red berry essences (raspberry, red cassis, cranberry), which are so focused that they almost seem perfume-like. These berry notes intermingle with darker, more earth-driven notes of bay leaf, oak leaf, cedar bark, and a touch of chocolate. On the palate, the entry shows a combination of warm raspberries and a hint of sage/tarragon. The texture at entry is broad, soft and warm, and the mouthfeel at the mid-palate stays consistently broad. Although the flavors present themselves boldly, the wine weight and texture show elegance and balance. The finish of the palate echoes the fruit essences so beautifully displayed in the aromas, with the bright, focused sweet red fruit flavors lingering as the other wine flavors slowly fade.

Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon has a slightly denser, fuller personality, with a deep ruby/purple color, a classic nose of spring flowers and cedar wood, and a touch of toasty oak interwoven with black cherry and black currant fruit. It is medium to full-bodied, shows velvety opulence and has a long finish. It should drink well for 15+ years.

Wine SpectatorFull-blown, dense and concentrated, with tiers of blackberry, wild berry, plum and licorice, this persistent red has a long, tightening finish. Pure and perhaps a bit richer and extracted than prior years. Best from 2012 through 2022.
