2008 Girard Artistry

Community Tasting Note


90 Points

Saturday, June 2, 2012 - Really like this Napa Bordeaux blend. Typical Cabernet (59%) color, wonderful berry and wood taste, with just a hint of chocolate. Just past medium finish. This tasted great now, will be better in 2013; not for long-term cellaring. Went perfectly with grilled tenderloin steak, corn on the cob and baby broccoli. Did open up some as the evening went on, we did decant, which we recommend. This second bottle seemed a click less than the 1/12/2012 bottle; this one seemed to open up more slowly...we got a 3rd bottle and will hold. Paid $38, which is about what you will pay for a 90-ish rated Napa Cab. Agree with the comment that we've paid much more for much less. Kudos to Girard, keep it coming!
