Alexander Valley Vineyards

Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

Red Wine

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic Alexander Valley wine with medium body, great fruit flavors and smooth, structured tannins. Winemaker Kevin Hall added 13% Merlot for structure, a touch of Cabernet Franc for floral notes and Malbec and Petit Verdot for color. There are aromas of black cherry, cassis, plum, slight blueberry, vanilla, oak and chocolate. In the glass there are rich flavors of cherry, cassis, blackberry and chocolate. This is a fruit forward wine with lush flavors, nice balance and a long, silky finish.

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Wetzel Family Estate is medium garnet-purple in color and scented of cassis, red plums and crushed black raspberries with touches of pencil lead and dried herbs. Medium-bodied with a firm backbone of chewy tannins and lively acid, it gives very good purity and expression. 77,000 cases produced.
