Natalie's Score: 90/100

Chalky dry on the finish with attractive dark berry notes before you get there. Full-bodied but heavy and smooth especially if you decant for 2 hours first.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: steak, lamb.

The Alexander Valley signature style is evident in this delicious cabernet: bold fruit aromas and flavors centered on red plum and boysenberry, and a rich and mouth-filling texture with soft tannins, all of which we’ve framed in the finest oak
barrels for 16 months.

This enjoyable Sonoma County Cabernet presents appealing dark fruit that is nicely accented by vanilla and cedar notes from the oak barrels used to age the wine. It is nicely balanced, with terrific intensity of flavour and length ... Score: 3½ (out of 5) CW
