2008 Umbral Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

2008 Umbral Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2008 Umbral has always shared similar characteristics to our estate blocks Cabernet Sauvignon. The main difference is the use of 100% free-run juice and by isolating those barrels at the end of fermentation to see what develops with each clonal selection, inevitably 5 or 6 barrels of our entire production of 30 or so barrels always stand above the rest. We carefully select each barrel that qualifies for Umbral and then after an additional 6 months of aging begin the clonal blending process to showcase the absolute best of our estate. The result in 2008 was a more intense, darker, riper, and richer wine that displays fresh crushed black cherries, nutmeg, toasty oak, and a wide array of spices intermixed with heavy layers of blackberry cobbler, espresso roast, and vanilla bean with a strong structured backbone that will support very long aging potential.
