Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander Valley (2015)
Rich and full-bodied this Cabernet delivers layered aromas of black licorice, vanilla bean, sweet tobacco and graham cracker followed by concentrated flavors of dark Bing cherry, wild berry compote and allspice. Structured yet silky on the palate, the finish is lengthy and vibrant.
The grapes were hand-sorted and underwent a two-day cold soak prior to fermentation to extract optimal color and flavor. After primary fermentation, the wine was then aged in French oak barrels, 75% new, where it underwent malolactic fermentation, followed by 20 months of aging.
