2008 Amavi Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon - USA, Washington, Columbia Valley, Walla Walla Valley (2/3/2011)
Opaque purple. Restrained nose with pencil lead, cigar box and dark fruit. Full bodied and concentrated. The palate is a bit shut down right now as well. Plum, mocha and cassis are coiled up and in a year or so should bloom beautifully as one can, even at this early stage taste the purity in the fruit. The wine is really showing more structure than anything else at the moment, but you get a great glimpse of what is to come on the long finish.
89 now, I would imagine it would be making a move upward once it gets some bottle age. Worth buying and cellaring. (89 pts.)
