Sebastiani Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley

Wine Description

(2009 Vintage) The dark garnet color is a prologue to the procession of blackberry and black cherries in both the bouquet and palate. Forest floor and tea-like aromas, typical of Alexander Valley Cabernet, are also present. The oak is in the background, which allows the elegance and character of the region to shine through. The palate delivers gobs of lush, concentrated blackberry and vanilla flavors framed by moderate tannins. Overall, our 2009 Alexander Valley Cabernet has lower alcohol and more finesse than the two previous warmer vintages. ~ Mark R. Lyon, Winemaker
