Winemaker's Notes

Adding Cabernet Franc to the blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot for the first time has contributed to the wines firmness. The wines aromatics and flavors are equally concentrated and mirror well the new blend. The nose is heady with wild blackberry, dark brown sugar a hint of chocolate-mint and roasting coffee with a note of spicy ribbon candy.

Richly textured and firm, the mouth is filled with flavors from start to finish of ripe black fruits enriched with moist loamy earth character. Excellently balanced.

Ill enjoy the newest Alexanders Crown with Beef Tenderloin or a Rib Roast with fresh Thyme. - Richard B. Sayre, Winemaker
