Alexander Valley Vineyards is owned and operated by the Harry Wetzel family. Founded in 1975, it is located on Cyrus Alexander's old homestead. Aromas of dark berry fruits with sweet spice. On the palate cherry and blackberry flavors with cacao and light pepper spice. Fine tannins good drinking now, ok balance with medium finish.

Young as all get out but not too bad. Lots of red, ruby, dark cassis, touch of spice, loads of baking spices, caramel, loamy soils, violets and dry red florals. Finishes decent for such a young wine. @ Centurion Lounge SFO

Easy to drink, moderate tannins, a little jammy for my taste but still very enjoyable and great wine for the price - 2016 vintage

Nice berry up front, good tannin, sufficient not excessive oak. Good value at $15.99

Complex with some spice. A big tannin leathery finish. Agree with others that it@changes over time. chocolate notes come out.
