Cabernet Sauvignon
Alexander Valley, 2007

$ 65.00

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

Compared with the 2007 Sonoma County Cabernet, this has more verve and more red-fruit character – a little less supple at this early stage, more mouth-watering – less for salmon, more for beef. The cassis character from the grape marries well with the moderate use of new French oak which tends to lift the perfumes of the wine so well when used appropriately. Our Alexander Valley bottlings have aged and developed extremely well over the decade that we have been producing them. This should be no exception. In fact, it has the stuffing to run an extremely long race if allowed to. I don’t keep enough of these in library, which I should do something about.

    The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is an excellent choice for drinking over the newt few years. Crushed flowers, spices, cedar and dried herbs all come to life in a soft, approachable wine that impresses for its balance and sense of symmetry. All the elements are in the right place. 90 points.

    Vivid ruby. High-pitched redcurrant and cherry aromas are complemented by notes of fresh tobacco and cracked pepper. Spicy and penetrating, offering sappy cherry and floral pastille flavors and a touch of back-end bitterness. Finishes tangy and long, with very good energy and slow-building tannins. It’s also balanced to reward patience. 90 points. Josh Raynolds
