Dark plum red in color with aromas of ripe blackberry and dark chocolate with hints of spicy oak and black pepper. The palate is rich and concentrated, with ripe blue and black fruits interlaced with notes of toasted oak, finishing with robust and rounded tannins.

The Alexander Valley, within Sonoma County, 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 soil, allows the Alexander Valley to produce some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon grapes in California.

Wine Profile
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 18 months of aging.
Winemaker Notes
The 2017 vintage was an excellent growing year, with record rainfall in January (20+”), almost double the historical average. Ideal weather through May led to very temperate flowering. The replenished groundwater aided a balanced vegetative cycle with lots of green, healthy vines.
