The 2008 Mission Hill Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is medium bodied with nice, FRUITY to integrated notes of strawberry, cherry that are a tad yogurty. It is tannic (decant for 15-30 min, which won't change the tannins) with medium, smooth and chalky finish. It will benefit from aging, best 2012 to 2016 and can age even more. My impression: NICE (I love tannic wines). I dubbed it a 'tannic strawberry', earning it a mere 87.5 pts - not a recommended buy due to disproportional cost. Tasted Nov/10.

Soft, mellow nose. Stewed dark berries, some alcoholic prickle. Lot's spicy pepper flavours, dry tannins. Good wine but this one didn't quite live up to it's price. Alcohol still seems a bit out of balance, this will not improve much more.

This one was far too hot and spicy for me! Mt husband enjoyed it though with the long finish and deep scent.
