Jen&Brian Banner
Greetings!

 

Announcing the highly anticipated release of the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon. This is perhaps my best Cabernet Sauvignon to date. In a word this Cab Rocks! This is the fourth vintage of Bumgarner Cabernet Sauvignon made from high elevation El Dorado mountain vineyards. Like a kung fu master this wine displays strength and balance yet epitomizes grace, beauty and harmony. The intensity and depth of fruit is balanced by a very full bodied yet silky smooth palate and long finish. This wine layers in notes of black cherry, lilac, espresso beans, dark chocolate, smoke, and crème brûlée on the finish.  With such delicious intensity and poise, it will be exciting to see how this wine develops over the next two decades.

 

 

Cheers,

 

Jennifer & Brian Bumgarner
