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 Bordeaux grapes available in California.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our Tribute is a blend of three classic Bordeaux varieties: the Cabernet Sauvignon backbone is complemented by Malbec’s rich blackberry flavors and Petit Verdot’s structure and ageability. The wine has layers of mocha, ripe black fruit, and cedar, with notes of spiced plum, vanilla, and spice. It boasts the dense structure and balanced, silky tannins that the Alexander Valley is famous for.
Production Notes
Grapes were hand-sorted and gently crushed. After native-yeast fermentation, the wine went through an extended maceration period to soften the tannins, and malolactic fermentation occurred in barrel. The wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered to preserve complexity.
Winemaker Notes
As with other parts of California, the Alexander Valley experienced a cooler vintage. Fruit components developed at a slower pace with pro-nounced acidity, resulting in wines with acid structure and integrated fruit and oak character.
