This full, smooth Cabernet Sauvignon offers a deep, plummy nose with a touch of pepper. The palate is beautifully balanced with rich blackberry and plum, overtones of sweet vanilla oak and a hint of tar. The elegant tannins and mouthwatering acidity will support 10-12 years of cellaring.

The Alexander Valley consists of a broad valley floor bisected by the Russian River.  It is surrounded by hills that block the coastal fog, keeping the region warmer than most of its neighbors.  This climate, combined with well-drained, gravelly soils, help the Alexander Valley produce some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon grapes available.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon presents blackberry and plum aromatics typical of the Alexander Valley. On the palate, the rich fruit is complemented by accents of sweet tobacco and vanilla. The elegant tannins, oak structure and balanced acidity will age this wine for 10-12 years
Vineyard Notes

This climate, combined with well-drained, gravelly soils, help the Alexander Valley produce some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon grapes available.
Production Notes
Grapes were hand-sorted and gently crushed. The wine underwent natural-yeast fermentation in barrel and had an extended maceration period to soften the tannins. The wine was bottled after 20 months of aging.
Winemaker Notes
The 2016 vintage was an excellent growing year, with a warm and dry winter, just like the previous four vintages. Yields were higher than 2015, but not by much. Conditions were ideal during the harvest, which was executed by the end of September.
