Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 - 90% Cabernet Sauvignon with a 10% splash of Merlot - Rogov 93 points.

A deep ruby with a nose of dark red fruits, blackberries, redcurrants and some pepper with decar wood pencilbox notes. On the palate, this is a big muscular wine with a rich punchy core of dark red fruit with blackcurrants, leather, some tobacco, mocha coffee and a slightly herbal note. The finish is very long, with some spice.

Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 - 94% Cabernet-Sauvignon and 6% Merlot - Rogov 92 points.

The grapes are intentionally harvested early. This wine is full bodied with firm tannins and masses of dark brambly fruit, with blackcurrant and liquorice flavours, coffee and leather aromas.

Both are ready now (2018) but can be cellared for a while still.

Ben says of the 2007 (March 2018): This deep red wine, with a lovely brown rim, is tremendously seductive just to look at! The nose is gorgeous with plenty of bramble fruits and a touch of green bramble stems. In the mouth, the seduction continues. The wine starts by appearing very soft but then the tannins kick in gently and the greater depth becomes apparent. The wine is a gently smoky delight with deep red and black fruits mingling wonderfully. There are forest floor notes, hints of sage and the beginnings of typical meatiness that Cabernet Sauvignon often develops with age.

Drink now, for sure, but do not be afraid to cellar for another ten years or more.
