The 2018 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is ruby in color with a magenta rim. It has an enticing nose of cassis, blackberry, vanilla, sage and spearmint. Upon entry, this wine builds from potpourri and bramble to a bright pop of raspberry on the mid-palate. A juicy finish with chewy tannins and a medium length, it will provide drinking pleasure through 2042 with proper cellaring.
Blend: 94.6% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlo, 0.5% Petit Verdot, 0.5% Cabernet Franc, 0.4% Malbec
