2008 Pont de Chevalier Cabernet Sauvignon
This impressive 2008 Pont de Chavelier Estate Cabernet Sauvignon was given an additional two years of bottle age so it would fully articulate the concentrated, complex and savory flavors of the vintage. The aromas slowly progress from lavender, cassis, and blackberry– bolstered by an underscore of sweet leather and espresso. The mid-palate delivers deep layers of concentrated fruit with a delicate interweaving of shaved dark cocoa. The flavors float over buoyant acidity through a lingering finish of sweet yet ample tannins. Tremendous now, this wine will dazzle with a few years of cellaring. Drink now through 2028.
Pair with slow roasted meat with espresso adobo sauce.
