2004 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Cropped in at 2 tons per acre and fermented with native yeasts and thrice-daily punch-downs, the wine spent 18 months in 2-year-old American oak barrels before being racked to neutral wood for another year.
This rich and complex Cabernet offers chocolate truffles, raspberry, and forest floor notes in the nose. It traverses the mid-palate with thick and concentrated tannins that are ripe and balanced, ending with flavors of blackberry, spice, and caramelized walnuts with a dash of vanilla.
Style: Full, Bold
