Our 2008 vintage was sourced from vineyards across Napa Valley. The varietal components were hand-sorted and aged separately to ensure that the best flavors and aromas come forward in the final blend. Each varietal aged for 25 months in 100% French oak cooperage prior to blending.
Nicely balanced with smooth tannins, this vintage has low acidity and a silky mouthfeel. Caramel, deep cherry and cigar box on the nose transforms into a palate saturated by notes of cracked black pepper and tempting mocha. Beautifully developed, our 2008 The Poet is ready to drink now.
