2008 Vint Hill Craft Winery Cabernet Sauvignon

I enjoy tasting different wines especially when they are one of my favorite varieties. I just opened a 2008 Cabernet from Vint Hill Craft Winery in Virginia. Kathy and I are also making a barrel of Cabernet at this winery and know the winemaker. Vint Hill goes the extra mile in making quality wines, such as a double sorting table for sorting grapes. After hours of experience on the two sorting tables I realize that back pain should add to the cost of a wine. Vint Hill is a state of the art winemaking facility and I am curious how their wines turn out.

Well, this 2008 Cab is good. It had a dark red to purple color with a red rim. The black fruit aroma was interrupted with cedar nuances. The taste was dominated with black raspberries on the smooth mouth feel. Bold tannins matched the fruity finish. This is good. I hope my Cab that will spend another twelve months in French oak turns out this good.
