2014 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Dynamite Cabernet from a third generation producer in Alexander Valley with some of the best dirt and winemaking talent in the region.

Lovely and immediately accessible nose with the full Cabernet fruit spectrum: dusty black cherry, cassis, and ripe blackberry notes are framed by vanilla bean, chocolate, and blossom. Medium-full bodied, seamless, and plump with good complexity, the juicy midpalate is flush with blackberry, bourbon vanilla, and toasty oak all supported by fresh acidity and offers excellent length and purity. I can’t emphasize enough how pleasurable and delicious this Cabernet is, and I suspect it will shortly become your “go to” bottle for any day of the week. Try this with some aged Gouda, filet mignon, or smoked meats.

Style: Full, Bold

Flavors: Blackberry, Oak

Alexander Valley inhabits the eastern reaches of Sonoma County and, along with Knights Valley, is the warmest in the county. Quite frankly, I think if one were to re-assess Sonoma and Napa counties from a vinous perspective, it would be tempting to drop both Knights Valley and Alexander Valley into Napa County as it extends north. However, political designations care little about temperature profiles and soil structures, and having both AV and KV in Sonoma County are what make it the most diverse winegrowing region in the world, capable of supporting just about any varietal you can imagine.

Lot 548 was farmed and produced by third generation growers that have some of the best dirt and winemaking talent in the region. I loved this wine the minute I tasted it, and drove the best deal I could to be able to bring it to you at this price.
