Winemaker's Notes

Amazing! This is a stylish, full-bodied and extremely complex Alexander Valley Meritage at a great price. The wine opens with a color of deep crimson red. Layers of black cherry and berry fruit aromas fold into elements of sage, spice, cedar and subtle vanillin oak. The structure of the palate is rich and intense. Artful blending has crafted a beautiful balance of fruit flavors, oak and fine tannin with great length. While the wine is approachable now, the true rewards will be over the next decade.

"The quintessential Alexander Valley Cabernet, always dependably soft, fruity and complex. This year is on the best ever. Plush and velvety, with endless nuances, it's like sipping the essence of black cherries stepped in kirsch. Dry, with just enough oak to add smoke and spice."
-Wine Enthusiast

This wine pairs perfectly with Filet Mignon with Peppercorn Sauce.

Also try Perfect Rib Roast, another great recipe for this wine.
