Winemaker's Notes

"Right up there with the best of Iron Horse's recent Cabs. This one's dry and balanced, with a complex array of blackberry, cherry, herb and spice flavors that finish long and ripe. There's a scour of tannins that suggests midterm ageability. Now through 2008."
-Wine Enthusiast

2001 is an excellent vintage. This particular bottling is an excellent expression of the year and of the Alexander Valley, one of the prime Cabernet growing regions of the world. Elegant and stylish, this release is made from 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, blended with 3 % Merlot and 22% Cabernet Franc. It has gorgeous, rich, dark berry fruit, with a touch of smoke, some mint and a hint of vanilla and it has gorgeous structure. It is a big wine, but typical of the Alexander Valley displays silky, soft tannins that aren't biting even in the wine's youth.

Food Pairings: It has the kind of breeding and structure that go well with steak, chops and eggplant Parmesan. It would also be a classic take-to-a-friend's-house wine because it is classy and special.

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

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.
