2008 Paratus Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon

Estate Grown

The 2008 Paratus is showing its personality and terroir with big, dark-fruit flavor and Mount Veeder boldness, and tannins that are balanced and well integrated. The wine has a velvety elegance and fine finish indicative of its Paratus heritage. It is a beautiful wine with deep, dark color, a distinctive array of aromas, and a lush, luxuriant mouth of red stone-fruit, blackberry and cassis. This wine will age well for eight to ten years.

Wine Profile
Ratings
"The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon shows gorgeous depth in its bouquet. Deep layers of dark red fruit, flowers, mint and anise flow gracefully from this beautifully delineated Cabernet. The 2008 is striking for its understated finesse and fabulous overall balance." - The Wine Advocate, Antonio Galloni, December 2011. “Impressive for its mix of dense, concentrated fruit and structure, offering floral aromas, with dried berry, mineral, black cherry and plum fruit that firms up nicely on the finish, pushing past the ripe, fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2023.” - Wine Spectator, James Laube, February 2012
