Arcanum 2008 Red Blend

96 Points by Robert Parker:

Arcanum is the pinnacle of the estate’s offerings. Based on Cabernet Franc, the true signature of the estate, this remarkable wine is built to age yet is drinkable young, offering aromas of violets, roses and raspberries, with long and delicate spice notes; it is a wine that is seductive yet subtle. Arcanum is sourced primarily from the L’Apparita and Belvedere blocks of Cabernet Franc. With superb exposure and sandy clay soils, each year these blocks shine to produce the finest expression of the variety, and the leading wine of the estate. 750 ML

Description

Details

Showcasing a dark ruby color and a mineral-driven aroma, the 2008 Arcanum is defined on the nose with dusty oak and dried red fruits. More terroir-driven than the 2007, the 2008 offers cherry, raspberry and red plums as sweet floral scents of lavender honey frame aromatics with subtle hints of mint and herbs. With moderate and granulated tannins, this is a wine with a structural precision in balance as the acidity echoes finesse and elegance.
