This vintage is a dream come true for Winemaker Rob Davis, combining both an excellent Alexander Valley growing season and our new direction with fruit sourcing.
Visually stunning with a deep garnet-ruby hue, this wine possessesan unprecedented elegance of fruit expression, lively acidity, tanninstructure and oak integration. Aromas of blackberry, black cherry and cassis are supported by subtle hints of baking spice and vanilla from oak aging. The mouthfeel is soft, silky and robing with a seemingly neverending finish. Enjoy now or cellar through 2025. Decant prior to serving to further accentuate the aromas and flavors.
The incredible balance of acidity, varietal fruit character, silky tanninstructure and restrained alcohol makes this vintage unparalleled in itsversatility on the dinner table. It carries the depth and body to holdup to a marbled rib-eye and the finesse and elegance to gracefullyaccompany the leaner filet mignon. Grilled, braised or roasted, lamb, venison, pork, chicken and duck also make for perfect pairingmaterial—the possibilities are only limited by the imagination.
Blend: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec
