Cabernet Sauvignon
Alexander Valley, 1999

$ 50.00

Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is typically one of the softer, rounder manifestations of the varietal. This is the more open-structured of our two Cabernet bottlings, which reveals its accessible, yet substantial and age-worthy personality. Rich, plummy, lightly herbal, and toasty, with mild cassis character, this unfined, unfiltered wine will complement a wide variety of foods for many years.

Winemaker's Notes

Experimenting with tiny lots of Cabernet Sauvignon from additional areas of my Father’s vineyard recently, I have come to understand the following: Some parts of the vineyard speak uniquely of this vineyard while others speak more classically of the region. This has been consistent over the last three vintages. Out of respect for this, it was natural to create our first regional Cabernet Sauvignon bottling, which is somewhat more open, forward and satisfying than the vineyard designate at this point. It has nice cassis, plummy, classically varietal flavors, with enough sweet tar, earth and mystery to keep things interesting and exciting. The finish is very long, rich, serious, and mouth-watering, yet friendly and engaging. It may be a regional designate, but it is definitely in the ‘House Style’ and would stand up well beside our ‘Scherrer Vineyard’ Cabernet Sauvignons. This should bury many wines at twice the price. (The Scherrer vineyard designate will be released in the fall.)
