2008 Chester-Kidder
 

Chester-Kidder 2008 - Stephen Tanzer's Intl. Wine Cellar

 "Expressive nose offers currant, cherry cola, graphite and dark chocolate. Silky, sexy and intense with firm, vibrant Cabernet fruit complicated by licorice and spices. Finishes lively and very long, with sweet tannins and solid structure."

92 POINTS


 

Chester-Kidder 2008 - Wine Spectator

"Tannins grip around the edges of expressive cherry, toasted meat and herb flavors, mingling effectively on the long finish. Strikes an attractive balance and keeps singing on the finish."

Chester-Kidder 2008 - Wine Advocate

 "Jellied cassis, dark cherry, and blueberry mingle with milk chocolate, caramel, and vanilla, while a suggestion of black pepper in the finish is surely traceable to Syrah. The most striking thing about this wine beyond its swee tsense of richness and its polished testure is a welcome sense of buoyancy."
