Alexander Valley Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Alexander Valley|
|Brand||Alexander Valley Vineyards|
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic Alexander Valley wine with medium body, great fruit flavors and smooth, structured tannins. Winemaker Kevin Hall added 12% Merlot for structure, a touch of Cabernet Franc for floral notes and Malbec and Petit Verdot for color. This is an elegant wine with earthy aromas of cassis, plum, black cherry, vanilla, oak, chocolate and a slight cola note. In the glass there are lush flavors of cherry, cassis, blackberry and chocolate. The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is a structured wine with firm tannins and a chewy finish that evolves with each sip. While fruit forward upon release, this wine will reward those with the patience to lay down a few bottles. Pairs well with grilled or pan seared beef, lamb or tuna is a classic.
Very direct, with a blast of chocolate-covered cherry laced with vanilla, plus light tobacco and savory hints through the finish. Drink now. 4,618 cases made.
