Tones of plum, currant and dark cherry carry this smooth, rounded red. Supple tannins underline it all, alongside a hearty dose of toasted oak. (Aug 2020)
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley features bold notes of warm cassis, blackberry pie and redcurrant jelly with touches of bay leaves, mossy tree bark and menthol plus a hint of crushed rocks. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a firm, rugged texture and oodles of freshness lifting the generous fruit to a long finish.
This sports gutsy, ripe plum and blackberry paste flavors coated with bittersweet cocoa. Stretches out a bit through the finish, letting savory and cedar notes add contrast. Drink now through 2022.
