Natalie's Score: 89/100

Savory, dark and rich with a Bordeaux-like elegance and balance. Finesse and structure yet lip-smacking delicious aromas of cassis, blackberry, dried herbs and a smoky finish. Full-bodied yum. Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: grilled steak.

Unique among Sonoma County’s AVA’s, the Alexander Valley is less influenced by the cooling maritime breezes as are the Russian River Valley and the Dry Creek Valley. What typifies this appellation is its endless sun-drenched days, which contribute to the Alexander Valley’s signature concentrated style.
The 2006 vintage in the Alexander Valley produced and abundance of the characteristic elegance normally associated with our Cabernet Sauvignon, complemented by surprising power and weight.
This classic 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon has intense aromas of cassis, dark berries and toasty oak. The firm, velvety tannins are complemented by flavors of blackberry, raspberry, cedar, and tobacco with hints of vanilla and dark chocolate that linger in a long, elegant finish.
