Winemaker's Notes:

This lavish wine showcases the abundant deep red and black fruit flavors that are typical of Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Black fig, Chambord liqueur, hibiscus flower, briar berries, and Bing cherry flavors dominate the palate. More subtle notes of ginger, caramelized brown sugar and mocha add dimension to the opulent structure. Aging in rich American oak barrels lends a plush fullness to the palate and complements the supple grape tannins with silky texture and vanilla spice character. The deep ruby hue of the wine shows beautiful purity of color and alludes to the robust weight of this bottling.
