Alexander Valley, 2009

$ 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

This is classic Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from a really favorable vintage for it. Cassis, red fruits, fresh loam, bright acidity all come together to make this a high-energy foil for all the typical Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings. ) As a very young wine, it shows its best with food at the table and I would pair it with typical hearty winter-time fare. Like the 2009 Syrah, it was bottled in August, just before the harvest and rewards patience in the decanter or with the corkscrew.

    Distinct elements of darkness run through the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon. Plums, cassis, grilled herbs and graphite are all very much alive in the glass. The 2009 impresses for its lush personality and round, silky finish. 90 points. Antonio Galloni

    Medium to medium-dark ruby; appealing, herbal, plummy, cassis and red berry fruit aroma with hints of green olive, bell pepper, and black pepper; medium-full to full body; tight, herbal, berry fruit flavors with bright acidity; medium-full to full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Enjoyable to drink over the next several years. Highly recommended. 89 points. Nick Ponomareff
