    Winemaker's Notes:

    In crafting Reserve Alexandre we look to our vineyard sources that consistently produce grapes with abundant fruit and rich structure. Low-yielding vines from high-elevations, hillsides, and bench land sites produce grape berries with excellent concentration, unparalleled finesse and subtlety. Each of the five varietals brings a unique character to the blend.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A great wine for drinking now, this is just beginning to show the evolution of its primary blackberry, blueberry and currant fruits. Hints of anise, dark chocolate, dried herb, spices and cedar add interest. This is a blend of the classic Bordeaux varieties, but the Cabernet Sauvignon component stands front and center with its firm tannins, depth and concentration.

    Deep ruby. Dark berry preserves, licorice and pipe tobacco on the highly perfumed nose. Chewy, palate-staining cassis and bitter cherry flavors are complemented by notes of vanilla and mocha, with a bitter chocolate note on the back half. Shows very good structure but no hardness. Chewy tannins give grip to the finish, which echoes the cherry and tobacco notes.

    An old-school Alexander Valley red, this has begun to show some evolution in its flavors and the openness of its tannins. Scents of peppermint, black olive and fig meld in the middle, turning toward dried fruit and oak notes in the end.

    If you like a little mint in flavor, this is great.
