Alexander Valley lies in the northeast of Sonoma County where mountains shelter the vines from the Pacific Ocean’s cooling influence. This warm climate is ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon wines of intense flavor and silky tannins, and the excellent drainage of the rich, gravelly soils provides unique depth and character to the wines. The 2014 vintage had a long and dry growing season with mild temperatures making for nearly perfect conditions.
Wonderfully complex aromas of fig, plum, and ripe berry join subtle hints of vanilla, cocoa nibs, and cola. This wine has a full-bodied mouthfeel with complex tannins that give way to a lingering, silky finish.
Being both full-bodied and elegant, this Cabernet Sauvignon is an excellent accompaniment to richly flavored food such as Barbeque Beef Ribs, Chicken with Port and Figs, or Pan-Roasted Veal Chops with Mushrooms.
