This is a big, rich complex Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep, inky crimson in color. The nose is dominated by lifted berry and casis fruit combined with smoky barrel ferment and sweet vanilla and cedar oak characters. The palate has great depth of concentrated Cabernet fruit and a backbone of fine-ground tannins. A classic Alexander Valley Cabernet. Due to the limited handling, this wine may develop a small amount of sediment over time.
