2008 Shining Hill

“Aromas of currants, boysenberry, cherry, clove and spice with a supple texture, soft finish, and lingering flavors of black fruit and spice characterize this 2008 bottling of Shining Hill.”

– Marcus Notaro, Winemaker


The 2008 growing season featured cool weather throughout, leading to extended hangtime for the fruit which resulted in grapes with intense fruit characters and elegant, supple tannins, particularly for Cabernet Sauvignon.
