2008 Shaard Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

This wine has aged well but should be drunk now. With 12 years in the cellar the wine shows a nice bouquet upon first opening. On the nose there are multiple subtle fruit aromas that appear—a mixture of blueberry and blackberry, some stewed plum fruit, the essence of subtle licorice, some black tea notes, with a touch of hazelnuts and almonds. And for this wine, the palate does match the nose, with hints of herbs like oregano and rosemary, black tea and fruit that continues with a nice balance of soft tannins and acid culminating with a good finish.
