08 Freeman Keefer Ranch ($46) ☺☺☺

When you blend a skilful winemaker with a great vineyard then the results can be outstanding. In this case Freeman goes to work on Keefer Ranch and the results are definitely a wine worth searching for. This is a ripe concentrated wine which gives off some great oaked cherries on the nose with a hint of the 'not so sweet' cranberries. I think its a keeper as the tannins were still well balanced and the fruit level high. Time will tell but even so young it held its own  with a T-Bone Steak.
