Winemaker's Notes

A stylishly polished wine, Reserve Alexandre displays balance between concentration and refinement. A core of blackberry jam, fine cherry and rich mocha is surrounded by more subtle nuances of dark chocolate, smoky-mint, and vanilla cream. The structure is softly complex with pliant tannins that will hold the wine for years if desired yet will yield handsomely to decanting in its youth. Overall balance, elegance and harmony are the hallmarks of this wine.

68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 9% Malbec 4% Petit Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

"This meritage shows the restraint that Alexander Valley can deliver in its best cabernet sauvignon (68 percent of the blend, with merlot, malbec, petit verdot and cabernet franc). And it has the fineness of tannin more typical of merlot or cabernet franc. Its firm black cherry fruit is highlighted by a hint of pyrazines, a touch of mint that adds to the savory tension of the wine. For prime rib."

The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
