Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2008 Coniale (Cabernet Sauvignon) is interesting in that it is a noticeably softer, smoother wine than the Merlot, which I did not expect. Sweet spices, cinnamon, plums, licorice and new leather are all woven together in this sumptuous, opulent wine. Layers of fruit build effortlessly to the rich, powerful finish. The Coniale was aged in French oak barrels, one-third new. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2024.
