Wine Description

(2008 Vintage)

2008 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a dark, rich full-bodied wine with great tannic structure and mouth-feel. It has a garnet color and a nose of ripe boysenberries, cherry liqueur, dark chocolate, sandalwood and a hint of roasting meat. On the palate, it is mouth-coating and incredibly rich in umami. It has a very long, savory finish with the slight grip of fine-grained tannins. Given proper cellaring, this wine should give drinking pleasure through 2030.

    Was one of my Dads favorite back I. The day $$$ but worth it sometime. Love the taste. I like dry smooth wines and usually drink Pinot. When I get a good order I will splurge on this wine.

    Absolutely fantastic. Incredible structure and complexity. Fruit forward and just enough oak.
