"Always anticipated, this Cabernet shows particular elegance and finesse this vintage. Not a blockbuster, it doesn't slam you with fruit, but instead offers up soft, smooth tannins that are wrapped around blackberry, coffee and herb flavors."-Wine Enthusiast
Briarcrest is a fine expression of the rich, supple texture typical of Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. This particular vineyard block produces fruit with deep blackberry and black cherry flavors, and a distinct "briary" characteristic. In a poetic moment, our winemaker Margaret Davenport described "briary" as "the smell of very ripe berries on a hot, still summer day walking through a vineyard that abuts a blackberry patch, overlaid with a woody/herbal aroma."
Though Briarcrest is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the extended maceration produces a smooth, richly textured wine; varietal flavors intensify and tannins soften during this additional time in contact with the skins following fermentation. French oak adds notes of toast, tobacco and chocolate. Briarcrest offers thick black cherry and blackberry flavors, balanced tannin and oak in the mid-palate, and a long, smooth, expressive finish.
Briarcrest pairs beautifully with tenderloin of beef, marinated in a red wine reduction sauce. Try it with a succulent roast leg of lamb that has been brushed with rosemary or Dijon mustard.

But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...Read More About Sonoma County
(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...Read More About Cabernet Sauvignon
