2018 Alexander Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
Our Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve program combines a top-shelf vineyard with old-world wine making techniques. Sallyvine vineyard is situated on an alluvial fan that spreads eastward across Alexander Valley from the Northern Coastal Range.
The soils are deep and well-drained and hold just enough water to sustain the vines without promoting excessive vigor. Cool nights and warm days provide ideal conditions to ripen the grapes and allow for maximum hang-time.
Our 2018 Alexander Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon has a dark, layered and ripe bouquet of cherry, toasty oak, loam, blackcurrant and black pepper, with subtle hints of roasted chile and hard candy.
The thick and full-bodied mouth-feel shows both raw power and elegance with ripe, mouth-filling tannins and velvety texture. Flavors of blue fruit, loam and French oak combine seamlessly into an impressively long finish.
