The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander’s Crown is pure wildness and gaminess. Savory herbs, licorice, menthol, tobacco and plums grace a powerful, structured frame in this expressive, individualistic Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The aromas and flavors are quite vivid from start to finish.
Dense and well-built, offering a tight mix of dried dark berry, smoke, charcoal and graphite notes, with dried herbs. The firm structure bodes well for aging, and the tannins give the flavors traction. Best from 2014 through 2024. 1,644 cases made.-JL
