Sinatra Family Estates Nothing But The Best Cabernet Sauvignon 2008, Napa Valley, USA
95 points Wine Enthusiast Representing a breathtaking advancement over the ’07, Sinatra’s 2008 Cab is simply delicious. It’s fleshy and fat in texture, with a glyceriney richness that makes it almost oily and that, when combined with caramelized oak, turns into nougat. The blackberry, cherry and cassis fruit flavors rise to the occasion. This is truly a stunningly good Cabernet.
93 points Int’l Wine Cellar Bright red-ruby. Ripe, soil-driven aromas of cherry, loam, licorice, minerals, bitter chocolate and flowers. A suave, juicy midweight with no excess fat to its pliant flavors of black cherry and flowers. Boasts excellent definition and balance. Finishes with firm but suave tannins and lovely persistence. Classy wine.
90 points Wine Advocate I loved the Sinatra Family Estates- 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon, and the 2008 is another successful effort, although perhaps not quite as riveting as the 2007. A joint project between the Sinatra family and some people in Las Vegas, the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon possesses a dense ruby/purple color in addition to a sweet bouquet of black currants, cedar and spice, an appealing texture and lushness, medium to full body and a velvety texture. This delicious, complex, evolved 2008 is ideal for drinking over the next 10-15 years.
