Swanson Cabernet Sauvignon Alexis 2010 750ml

Swanson Cabernet Sauvignon Alexis

Voluptuous, celebratory, and exquisitely finessed, our bewitchingly original Cabernet Sauvignon stands tall among Napa Valley’s blockbuster Cabernets. Alexis is a wine lover’s wonderland: complex, aromatically beguiling and as powerfully elegant now as ten years forward. A consistent Swanson Vineyards classic with a cult-like following, mouth-watering richness, and a friendly price tag which makes buying a case of this rare gem irresistible.

An early budbreak was encouraged by a spring of warm, balmy days, which warmed the vineyard soils sooner than anticipated. We then experienced some cooler weather in the beginning of summer, slowing budbreak, which had us all thinking "early harvest." Two short periods of very hot weather, one in July and the other in August, did result in a slightly early harvest. Rapid sugar development and a warmer-than-average season with an extended "hang time," all came together to produce a wine of excellent floral and fruit character.
