2007 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Lot 152 2007 Alexander Valley, Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon
Whoa, I am writing my tasting notes one day after doing the video, and now we have a very different wine here … considerably more open. Upon first opening this wine I got classic cassis, but today the nose is almost pure blackberry jam with just a few chocolaty raspberries underneath. Beautiful and piercing. The palate is rich and long, showing more cherry fruit and, again, chocolate. The finish is broad and expansive (with deep, dark chocolate tannins), but it ought to be: After all, this wine has been open for a day now. Yummy stuff worthy of a long decant and plenty of cellaring.
Style: Full, Bold
