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.

Alexander Valley Vineyards Winery Video
Alexander Valley Vineyards is owned and operated by the Harry Wetzel family. Founded in 1975, it is located on Cyrus Alexander's old homestead.

The Wetzel Family Estate now grows fourteen grape varieties, on diverse sites stretching from the banks of the Russian River up onto the hillsides. Each grape variety is matched to a specific soil type and exposure. Vineyard Manager Mark Houser and Winemaker Kevin Hall work as a team to maximize fruit flavor in the vineyard and to create balanced wines that capture the grapes’ varietal characteristics. Hank Wetzel oversees the vineyard and winery operations, and his wife Linda continues to oversee administration. Now the third generation of Wetzels has joined the winery. Harry Wetzel, IV is assistant winemaker while younger brother Robert is the National Sales Manager.

Alexander Valley Vineyards produces 100,000 cases annually, 17 varietal wines and proprietary blends. Seventy-five percent of AVV’s production is red wine. Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon constitute roughly half of total production. Other varietals include Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Gewurztraminer, Syrah, Sangiovese, Viognier, and Cabernet Franc.
