Region: Alexander Valley, Sonoma County, California
Winemaker's Description: This vintage's Cabernet Sauvignon is quite opulent with deep, dark flavors of fruit framed by firm tannins and rich oak character. Full-bodied and beautifully textured. Enjoy a luscious palate of blackberries, cherries, and cassis along with fragrant earthy minerals and notes of anise and cocoa. As the flavors build and flow, a toasted caramel impression at the end creates an alluring finish. Best with a few years of aging, but you can enjoy this wine now with 1 to 2 hours of decanting.
