Winemaker Notes

The 2015 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a dense ruby red color. Rich aromas of Crème de Cassis and bergamot tea predominate with hints of vanilla wafer and cocoa powder. The palate showcases focused blackberry fruit flavors in a more elegant style with some Cabernet spice and leanness. Bright berry fruit and a slight sweetness imparted by the oak lingers on the finish. The tannins are ripe and round affording early drinkability.Blend: 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot.

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley has a deep garnet-purple color and is scented of crushed blackberries, black cherries and warm plums with hints of spice box, unsmoked cigars and cedar chest. Full-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-filling black fruit and savory layers, with a firm backbone of grainy tannins, finishing long and spicy.

Decanter
Sebastiani, under William Foley ownership, has streamlined its offerings, eliminating the cheap-and-cheerfuls and drilling down to the best in each region. Alexander Valley is well represented in this relatively affordable wine, oozing with cassis, French vanilla, fresh herbs and cherry cola character. It's juicy and rewarding, with raspberries, a hint of chocolate and a tangy, palate cleansing finish. 50% new French oak. Drinking Window 2019 - 2028

Sebastiani Sebastiani Cherryblock Vineyard Winery Image

Since it’s founded in 1904 by Samuele Sebastiani, Sebastiani Vineyards & Winery has been a Sonoma winemaking tradition. The winery is located in the heart of downtown Sonoma and offers a historic winery with a hospitality center, barrel room with stunning antique redwood tanks, a grand event space and daily tours and tastings.

Planted in 1961, the “Original Vineyard Block” now known as Cherryblock, was planted primarily to Cabernet Sauvignon, which led the winery to create one of Sonoma County’s first varietal Cabernet Sauvignon. Sebastiani has continued its tradition in crafting a variety of Cabernet’s including the iconic Cherryblock, Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon. Utilizing grapes from a variety of premier growing sites created wines with richness and complexity. 

Proprietor, Bill Foley, purchased Sebastiani in 2008 and honors the traditions of Sebastiani while embracing the future. Sebastiani Vineyards and Winery continues to create consistent, highly acclaimed wines crafted by Winemaker, David Nakaji.

Nearly a northern extension of Napa Valley, Alexander Valley starts just north of the small, Knights Valley, and is just a few minutes drive from the Napa town of Calistoga. It is Sonoma County’s hottest AVA. But the Russian River, which runs through the valley, creates cooler pockets and its soft, alluvial soil is ideal for grape growing, especially Cabernet Sauvignon. In fact, some believe that Alexander Valley Cabernets truly rival the best from Napa Valley and many of the heavy-hitter producers have largely invested here.

In addition to Cabernet Sauvignon, which makes up over 50% of plantings, Merlot and old vine Zinfandel thrive here. Ample, fleshy Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc dominate white wine production. Some old-vine plantings of Grenache have also been discovered and more recent experiments with Sangiovese and Barbera show great promise.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
