Ramey Wine Cellars 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon, $36.71-$47.99, 93 points, appeared consistent with other California Cabernets in this series, and the Ramey too was black at the core trending a deep fruity purple/red toward the transparent rim.
Beautiful bouquet of warm earth, spiced plum, cinnamon, anise and sweet blackberry just maybe was the best I've experienced this year.
Near full body carried good acidity with moderate fine tannin building in intensity into the finish.
Juicy blackberry and boysenberry with anise and coffee notes were deliciously well balanced and integrated with the 14.5% alcohol; all of which was carried into the long finish with hints of spice and tobacco.
