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.

Critical Acclaim

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

With over a century of winemaking experience in Sonoma, Sebastiani Vineyards & Winery focuses on crafting small lots of super-premium wines from the great growing regions of Sonoma County, becoming one of California’s most highly praised and awarded wineries for its Bordeaux and Burgundian varietals.

With the spotlight on single vineyards and specific sub-appellations such as Sonoma Valley, Alexander Valley, Carneros and Russian River Valley, Sebastiani produces wine under the Sonoma County, Appellation Selection and Proprietary Selection designations. Founded in 1904 by Samuele Sebastiani, the winery is best known for its Cherryblock Cabernet Sauvignon, one of Sonoma County's most coveted wines. The winery is located just blocks from Sonoma's historic downtown plaza and offers historical tours as well as extensive picnic grounds and hospitality venues.

Alexander Valley

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. Inherently high in tannins and acidity, the best bottlings of Cabernet can age beautifully, with the ability to last fifty years or more. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in temperate climates like Bordeaux's Medoc region and forms the base of the Medoc reds, which are typically mostly Cabernet with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. (Enjoying a great deal of success in various regions around the world, this blend is now globally referred to as a Bordeaux Blend.) Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa Valley is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines.

In the Glass

High in color, tannin and extract, Cabernet Sauvignon expresses notes of blackberry, cassis, plum, currant, spice and tobacco. In Bordeaux and elsewhere in the Old World you'll find the more earthy, tannic side of Cabernet, where it is typically blended to soften tannins and add complexity. In warmer regions like California Washington, Argentina, Chile and Australia, you can typically expect more ripe fruit flavors upfront.

Perfect Pairings

Cabernet Sauvignon is right at home with rich, intense meat dishes—beef, lamb and venison, in particular—where its opulent fruit and decisive tannins make an equal match to the dense protein of the meat. With a mature Cabernet, opt for tender, slow-cooked meat dishes.

Sommelier Secrets

Despite the modern importance and ubiquity of Cabernet Sauvignon, it is actually a relatively young variety. In 1997, DNA profiling revealed the grape to be a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc which took place in 17th century southwestern France.
