Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 2010 Vintage) Our 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is an elegant representation of Napa Valley Cabernet from a cool vintage. It presents an opaque garnet hue in the glass and reveals aromas of sandalwood and roasted meats. Flavors of vanilla, coffee beans and raspberries are buttressed by dusty tannins, firm acidity and a mouth-coating texture. Given proper cellaring, this wine should provide drinking pleasure through 2029.

Winemaker's Notes

The 1997 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has a wine of great intensity. It has a dark ruby color and displays a nose of cassis, violets, unsweetened cocoa and roasting coffee. This wine is rich and extracted with a long, rich, fruity finish with a medium tannic grip. The 1997 will continue to improve through 2022 with proper cellaring.

    Sporting all of the flashy oak that has helped create its cult-wine status, this sweetly scented effort displays elements of cocoa, vanilla and toasted coconut as adjuncts to its central theme of black cherryish fruit. Fairly smooth and supple, the wine sets its fruit against unabashed oakiness in the mouth as well, and that fundamental impression of fruit stays the course and invites a half dozen years of cellaring.
