Although this wine has much more Cabernet Sauvignon than the 2007, the wines seem to be more like sisters than cousins. The 2008 stands not in the shadows of 2007, but right next to it. It is a wine that although different in structure, nevertheless possesses all that it needs to satisfy now and in the future.
46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 23%, Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot.
"The 2008 Champoux Vineyard is made up of 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Petit Verdot. It sports an inviting bouquet of sandalwood, rose petal, Asian spices, a hint of leather, black currant, and blackberry. This is followed by a succulent, plush, pleasure-bent wine that deftly conceals enough structure to evolve for 5-7 years. It offers a drinking window extending from 2016 to 2028+." -Rated 95, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
