Cabernet Sauvignon with all the components desired yet with a great suppleness and freshness not found in other areas. The nose is forward with currants, mineral, earth, sweet herbs de Provence, and oak framing. The mouth feel is broad and rich with black currants, a very full mid-palate, and moderate tannins and fresh acidity through the finish.
Concentrated aromas of ripe cherry, cassis, graphite, and a pleasant herbal and earthy component. Pronounced fruit, ripe tannins and great length.
This wine smells and tastes like a classic Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The nose on the '00 Cab is rich with cassis, black currants, and cherries, complimented by subtle oak. Broad and smooth, the wine is structurally balanced by sufficient tannins and acid to carry through to a lingering finish. Big and bold in its youth, this wine provides several years aging potential within which it can be expected to refine and solidify. It is hard to let sit, however, with such a high caliber of fruit showing so early.
