2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve - Diamond Mountain - Napa Valley
95 points, Double Gold Medal (San Francisco International Wine Competition)
Best Micro Winery Napa Cabernet (California State Fair Wine Competition)
91 points CELLAR SELECTION (Wine Enthusiast Magazine)
"A mountain of a mountain-grown Cabernet, this is hearty and generous in cherry-vanilla-laden tannins and a leathery grip on the palate. Herbal notes intermix with anise and soy sauce, a taste of black tea and ripe black, brambly fruit upfront. Give the wine time and air to soften." (by V.B.)

2008 Cabernet Sauvignon - Diamond Mountain - Napa Valley
93 points, Best in Show (Affairs of the Vine Cabernet Shootout)
"The nose is complex with herb garden notes, restrained dark fruit, cinnamon, allspice, and oak. The palate is complex displaying great integration. The intense fruit pops immediately and finishes with spice and ripe tannins. Age worthy!"
90 points (Wine Enthusiast Magazine)
"Holding its wines in barrel and bottle longer than most before release, En Garde’s Cabernet shows ample, leathery tannin that will benefit from further aging, in addition to being hedonistically enjoyable now. Cinnamon and clove are the most pronounced aromas and flavors, followed by black currant." (by V.B.)
2008 Pinot Noir Reserve - Russian River Valley
93 points (Pinot Noir Summit, SF)
"Herbaceous aromas blend seamlessly with bright red cherry fruit…”Enticing!” Beautiful purity. A touch of florality layers nicely with raspberry and cherry fruit, spice and earth notes."
