just popped etude 2008 cab last night, was being stored in room temp for a year ( 70's 80's ) 3 seconds outta the bottle 94/95...easily *!...i don't know who thinks this is a 90 or 91...Lol...ive got $16 and $18 bottles that are 91's....all day long :)....definitely don't miss this precious baby...( Elegant exquisite mature baby ) :)
Brief comments- in a word, gorgeous. Opulent and lush with terrific black fruit and floral qualities. Wonderful mix of blue, black and red fruit on the palate, again very opulent but at the same time elegant. Very well-balanced. Lovely.
Opened 2 hours before dinner. 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. Ruby color. Aromas of lilacs and berries. Notes of vanilla, sweet cherry and plum. Creamy texture and lightly oaked. Smooth tannins and drinking very well now but will continue to show well for years. Long finish. The most elegant and my favorite of the 3 2008 Cabs. 94 points.
