Winemaker's Notes

This classic Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon others intense aromas of blackberry, black cherry, chocolate, cedar and baking spices. On the palate, flavors of chocolate, cloves, ginger, cigar box and lavender are perfectly balanced by velvet textured tannins, which lead to a long elegant finish. this wine will shine on its own or paired with juicy prime steaks or Black forest cake. this Cabernet Sauvignon is a wonderful introduction to Alexander Valley.

Critical Acclaim

"The red wines from winemaker Ed Killian, who has done a credible job for many years at Souverain, start with an excellent value, the 38,000-case 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon from Alexander Valley. One hundred percent Cabernet Sauvignon, this is an unqualified sleeper of the vintage. Sweet black currant notes intermixed with cedar wood, licorice, and underbrush are all present in this medium to full-bodied, opulent, round, generously endowed wine. Drink it over the next decade or more. This is one for Cabernet enthusiasts to stock up on."

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

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes.
