"This offering of Alexander Valley Cabernet is full-bodied with firm tannins. This wine seems to be a cross between the 1999 and 2002 vintages: It has notes of herbs and black tea and lots of lush, forward fruit. In many respects, it reminds me of a 2000 Haut Medoc, due to the tight, fine grained tannins and spice notes. I think this wine has tremendous aging potential."
