Rodney Strong Alexander's Crown Cabernet Sauvignon 1997
Richly textured and firm, the mouth is filled with flavors from start to finish of ripe black fruits enriched with moist loamy earth character. Excellently balanced.
Ill enjoy the newest Alexanders Crown with Beef Tenderloin or a Rib Roast with fresh Thyme. - Richard B. Sayre, Winemaker
