Covenant Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

REVIEW BY WINE SPECTATOR
April, 2012
Score: 90

Dense, tight and concentrated, ending with a good dose of cedary oak. A shade sleeker, more svelte and less tannic than the Solomon Lot 70 bottling. Kosher. Best from 2013 through 2024. 450 cases made. –JL

The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa (450 cases produced) demonstrates Morgan’s nice touch with tannin, as they are velvety and supple rather than astringent. The wine possesses plenty of dark berry fruit, spice box, black currant, and cedary notes presented in a lush, round, generous, full-bodied format. Consume it over the next 10-15 years.

Jeff Morgan continues to fashion what may be the world’s finest kosher wines.

Covenant, Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, 2008: Impenetrably dark garnet in color, made from 20 year old, low yield vines, opens with near-sweet tannins that coat the mouth gently, and dusty wood, those yielding to generous black fruits and notes of both dark chocolate and licorice, with the fruits rising on the long and mouth-filling finish. Best 2011-2018. Tentative Score 92-94.. K
