Deep ruby. Perfumed nose. Rose pedals and lavender. Lingering rose on the tastebuds. Tannins gave structure. Candied strawberry with dark chocolate.

One of our favorite Cabs. Luckily we found a sale at halfwit wine where it was only $11 per half bottle.

Bold red with fruit notes. Opens well. Full body. Nice with food and alone.

This seems to be a very typical northern Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a really dark wine with deep dark fruit punctuated with a slight vegetal tinge that I have come to expect from Alexander Valley. This is a really really good example of cooler climate Cabernet Sauvignon. I am a fan.

Tons of black fruit on the nose. Hint of bell pepper. Drinking well for a youthful Sonoma Cab.

My theory about Sonoma cabs still holds - wait 10 years before opening. Nice effort
