Winemaker Notes

There is great structure along with concentrated fruit in the 2010 Cyrus. In the glass there is terrific color with expressive aromas of cassis, berry, plum, toasty oak and vanilla. This is a rich, complex wine with flavors of dark fruits, spice, oak, vanilla and cocoa powder. Enjoyable upon release, this wine will reward those with the patience to age it.

Blend: 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
Cyrus is the winery’s highest expression of Cabernet. This 2010 shows the softness and slight herbaceousness of Alexander Valley, but it’s rich and delicious in blackberries, cherries, currants and sandalwood. Blended from all five classic Bordeaux varieties, it holds subtle complexity.
W&S 91
Wine & Spirits
A blend of cabernet (51 percent), merlot (28 percent), franc (18 percent) and some malbec and petit verdot, this is winemaker Kevin Hall’s selection of top estate-grown lots. It shows the zestiness of the cool 2010 vintage and the dark-fruited potency resulting from a September heat spike that caused problems in some vineyards. Here, that power is appetizing rather than blousy, a bold streak of cassis and cedar carried in a lush texture, with enough tannic friction to focus that exuberance toward a rare steak.

History, tradition, and excellence. Those three words easily describe Alexander Valley Vineyards. In the mid-1800s valley namesake Cyrus Alexander called the land that is home to AVV as "the brightest and best spot in the world." He settled, built his home, and raised his family. In 1962 the Wetzel Family followed his lead, continuing a tradition of family farming. Today the fourth generation of their family is growing up next door to the working winery known around the world as "AVV."

The Wetzel Family Estate spans over 720 acres with vineyards on both sides of the Russian River, from the valley floor up to the Mayacamas mountains. In between there is a wide diversity of micro-climates, elevations, exposures, and soil types. The Russian River defines this land with foggy mornings, warm days, and diurnal temperature swings of 40 to 50 degrees. Their estate vineyards combined with veteran winemaker Kevin Hall's classic winemaking techniques maximize the balance of fruit and acidity in every wine. Barrel aging in their underground wine caves accentuates the wine's character. Every bottle shares AVV's story and each glass brings the special place they call home to yours.

While AVV is well known for their elegant Cabernet Sauvignon, they also produce an array of estate wines including Chardonnay, Merlot, Zinfandel and their premium Cab blend – CYRUS. The secret to the quality and value in their hand-crafted wines starts with their initial property purchase in 1962 and continues with their commitment to their land.

Alexander Valley Vineyard's practices were initially recognized by the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance in March 2006 and in 2010 they were recognized as a certified "Sonoma Green Business." Their motto says it all: "Our family creates wines of distinction for everyone!"
