Cabernet Sauvignon
Alexander Valley, 2015

$ 44.00

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

Much to the delight of those who have asked for more of this bottling in the past, we were able to keep a somewhat larger portion of this part of the Scherrer Vineyard for ourselves. It is on a soil somewhat higher in clay than the section that makes up our Scherrer Vineyard designate and it is planted with a different rootstock. These two underground differences are significant and point them toward separate bottlings. This vineyard section, on 140 Ruggieri rootstock, gives more red fruits and relies more on acidity and less on tannin for its structure.

Red cherries, herbal, cassis, dill, freshly tilled loam make up the initial aromas. The more time in the glass, the more the red cherry comes through the mix. At this early stage of life, both the moderate tannic structure and life-giving acidity act as equivalent partners upholding the ‘angles’ side of things. It is a beautiful wine that I think really showcases the beauty of Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. I have recently shown it to visitors, and they have all remarked on how refreshing it is.

    The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is an absolutely gorgeous wine that will drink well right out of the gate. Silky tannins and pliant fruit balance the more earthy, savory elements that are signatures of the Scherrer Cabernets. All the elements simply fall into place in this mid-weight Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2015 is a bit riper and more overt than it often is, but that is the vintage speaking. 92 points. Antonio Galloni

    Medium-dark ruby; attractive, forward, fragrant, red cherry and blackberry fruit aroma with hints of cassis, dried herbs, dill, tobacco leaf, and graphite; full body; rich, ripe, cedary, cherry and blackberry fruit flavors with good depth, well integrated oak, and pleasing richness and balance in the mouthfeel; full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Enjoyable now, though deserving at least two to three more years of bottle aging. Very highly recommended. My Score: [91/100] Nick Ponomareff
