No wine better depicts the extraordinary range of Cabernet Sauvignon expression from Alexander Mountain Estate than this one. Meticulously considered block selection from all elevations is the key: the mid-mountain blocks (700-1,100 ft.) provide floral and spice aromatics, flesh and vivid red fruit while the higher blocks (1,200-2,400 ft.) offer a black mineral streak and the etched structural backbone for which this wine is so well known.
A lovely, complex and flavorful Cab, but also tannic, giving it a lockdown feeling. There’s a rich core of blackberries, black currants, spices and herbs, while new oak gives it a savory smokiness. Better after 2010, and should glide through 2014.
