    Style: Big & Bold

    Item no. 98326

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep ruby red color, the expression of cabernet sauvignon is evident providing structure and elegance. Lots of berries fruits and hints of tobacco and vanilla. Promising abundant soft rounded tannins. The structure and balance of this full bodied wine makes it very pleasant and enjoyable. A very sophisticated wine with a delightfully long finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2006 Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon has 10% Merlot in its blend. It received the identical barrel/tank regimen. Purple-colored, it exhibits aromas of cedar, spice box, tobacco, black currant, and blackberry. Layered yet elegant, it has enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years. Balanced and lengthy, it should drink well from 2009 to 2016.

    Ruby-red. Lively aromas of red- and blackcurrant are complicated by fresh rose and smoky Indian spices. Fresh red berry flavors stain the palate without any undue weight, picking up subtle tobacco and floral character on the back end. Impressively graceful cabernet with very good finishing clarity and sweetness.
