Winemaker's Notes

The 1995 Alexander Valley has a medium to dark, ruby-red color and an expressive nose of black cherry, violets, licorice, cigar box and soy sauce. This is an elegant wine with a fruit-sweet attack, medium body and a long, fruity finish. Enjoy now to 2020.

Critical Acclaim

"The 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley is performing far better after a year of bottle age. This dark ruby/purple-colored, seductive wine offers blazingly intense aromas of cigar box, smoky oak, and jammy black currants with a hint of Provencal herbs. Ripe and full-bodied, with low acidity, and a fleshy, succulent texture, it is a wine to drink over the next 14-15 years."
94 Points

"A touch of dill and coconut from oak give this a unique aromatic and flavor profile and there's plenty of rich, intense, spicy currant, plum and blackberry fruit to stand up to the wood. Hints of anise and cherry flow through on the finish, keeping the fruit in the forefront.--1995 California Cabernet retrospective."

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

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(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,...
