When your vineyard is farmed by David Abreu and your wine is made by the Bryant Family winemaker (Helen Keplinger) one can only expect the best-of-the-best. For those of you who purchased the 2007 vintage (and loved it – I know some of you bought as many as 5 cases of this wine last year) will be glad to hear that the 2008 is an even better wine! Again, the production is very small but the wine is stunning!
Scully 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon, Mt. Veeder Napa Valley
Retail 55.00 – GGWC 49.99
This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from the Scully’s vineyard high-up on Mt. Veeder offers intense aromatics of bright strawberries and anise. On the palate this bold wine offers a silk mouth feel that is rich and complex. One encounters dark stone fruit that is nicely balanced with a touch of vanilla and whiff of spiciness that carries on through the long lasting finish. This is a gem-in-a-bottle!
