2012 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Immediately present in this wine are seductive layers of fleshy black cherries, cassis, dark chocolate and fresh raspberries which are complimented with dusty, tobacco leaf aromas; these are classic Cabernet Sauvignon notes. I find that when you smell a wine you start to anticipate how it will taste based upon its aroma. This wine delivers on all its aromatic potential. It is young, fresh and dense, but also has a tremendous richness with tiers of dark berries, dark chocolate, and cassis. This wine is one to enjoy now and one to lie down, it should age beautifully!
