The D.R. Stephens 2008 “DRII” Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend from D.R. Stephens’ two Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in Napa Valley – Moose Valley Vineyard in St. Helena and Walther River Block Vineyard in Rutherford. These vineyards are used to bottle D.R. Stephens’ single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons and consistently produce exceptional fruit.

Highlighting the best fruit characteristics from each vineyard, the 2008 DRII Cabernet Sauvignon shows deep, expressive aromas of raspberry, mocha, and cinnamon, while the palate is bursting with rich fruit and well-integrated tannins that remain elegant and flavorful through the long, blossoming finish. Wine Enthusiast says this Cabernet Sauvignon “possesses that elusive quality variously called finesse or elegance. Even though it’s a big wine, filled with blackberry, cassis, dark chocolate and oak flavors, and the tannins are firm, it feels like pure velvet, showing pedigree all the way through the long finish.”
