A powerful young wine with intense dark fruit flavors of dark plum, cassis, blueberry, black cherry and blackberry. Ripe and concentrated, layered and expansive. Offers a hint of anise, juniper and cedar on a rich, polished, lingering finish.
Nearly a northern extension of Napa Valley, Alexander Valley starts just north of the small, Knights Valley, and is just a few minutes drive from the Napa town of Calistoga. It is Sonoma County’s hottest AVA. But the Russian River, which runs through the valley, creates cooler pockets and its soft, alluvial soil is ideal for grape growing, especially Cabernet Sauvignon.
