With this vintage, five lots of wine were selcted from estate vineyards in the eastern mountains and hills enclosing the southern end of the Alexander Valley. Elevation holds the key to this wine's combination of boldness and elegance: more than 80% of the grapes used to make this wine were grown at elevations of at least 2,000 feet. Most of the Cabernet Sauvignon was chosen from selected blocks planted at 2,400 feet on Alexander Mountain Estate. "A serious Cabernet Sauvignon dominated blend from Alexander Valley. Classic, acid and tannin structure with a full dense core. Red currants, cherries, earthy dust and a dense cocoa, dark chocolate, ripe plums, blackberries, bright and pure. Balanced, full and elegant." Graham Weerts, Winemaker (hide)
