08 Cabernet Sauvignon
Santa Ynez Valley
This first Tommy Town vintage was sourced from the Tommy Town estate and Star Lane Vineyards just prior to the establishment of the Happy Canyon AVA in 2009. The vintage produced elegant Cabernet fruit that yielded lush, silky wines marked by sweet black fruit supported by fine, supple tannins underscored by discreet oak notes.
Winemaker: Kirby Anderson
Harvested: October 19 to November 10, 2008
Released: January 2012
The wine is a beautiful color - a ripe blue/red. On the palate the wine is immediately juicy and fruit driven with flavors of blackberry and cherry. This lush Cabernet Sauvignon is wrapped in fine grain tannins, which will provide many years of drinking pleasure.
