Alexander Valley, Sonoma County, California
This Cabernet Sauvignon is characterized by a beautiful rich nose with generous bright fruit and deep, concentrated, multi-layered aromas of dark red cherry, blackberries, licorice, and caramel. Espresso and cassis mingle with hints of dark chocolate and tobacco. Well-integrated elements of sweet oak and vanilla carefully complement the fruit flavors and the round, rich silky middle. 22 months in French oak.
