Blankiet Proprietary Red Paradise Hills Vineyard 2008, 1.5L (WA95+) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Blankiet Proprietary Red Paradise Hills Vineyard

1.5L

Vintage: 2008
Region: US
Appellation: Napa

WA95+
Rated 95+ points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `Composed of 82.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and the rest tiny dollops of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, the 2008 Paradise Hills Vineyard Proprietary Red has added considerable richness, weight, texture, nuance and complexity over the last year. Aromas of chocolate, espresso, blackberries, black currants and charcoal/burning embers leads to a full-bodied, expressive, rich wine that is nearly as compelling as the 2007. Dense, full-bodied and already drinkable, it should evolve for 20+ years.` -- Robert Parker in the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `Claude and Katherine Blankiet continue to make subtle changes in their winemaking at Blankiet Estate. Michel Rolland has been replaced by Denis Malbec, but superstar viticulturist David Abreu still manages this gorgeous hillside vineyard in the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains, just behind the large estate of Dominus. The 2008s have improved dramatically since last year, which may be the result of the culling out of certain lots for their second wine called Prince of Hearts. The 2007s essentially performed as well as they did last year, and it appears to be the greatest vintage yet produced at Blankiet.`
