Individual lots of Cabernet Sauvignon
grapes from select hillside vineyards, primarily from the central
and Northern, warmer areas of the valley, form the core of this
wine's character. Limited in production, this wine exhibits the
hallmarks of classic Alexander Valley Cabernet.
Richly colored, this powerful wine shows heady aromas of blackberry and
blueberry fruit, as well as sweet vanillin oak and a hint of mint. Rich and decadent on the palate,
the wine's power cedes to a pleasing, underlying elegance, both voluptuous and tannic at the same
time. Flavors of blueberry and black cherry are underlain by a fine seam of acidity, which mingles
with tannins and fruit on a persistent finish.
Had this wine at Cool River restaurant, Denver on the recommendation of the waiter. Excellent for the venison I was dining on.
