James MacPhail's Notes
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 area warmer than most of its neighbors. This climate, combined with well-drained, gravelly soil, allows the region to produce some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon grapes in all of California.
