Adz 1frei Brothers 00002293 Frei Bros Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes for this wine were gently destemmed but not crushed, leaving a significant number of whole berries for fermentation. The must received approximately 10 days of skin contact to enhance the extraction of vivid color and intense flavors. Temperatures were closely monitored and kept at approximately 85°F during fermentation to yield a richer, rounder mouthfeel and body in the wine. Malolactic fermentation added complexity and softened the wine's acid structure.

Frei Brothers Reserve was established in Sonoma County’s Dry Creek Valley by Swiss immigrant Andrew Frei. In operation since 1890, Frei Ranch and the winery have played an integral part in establishing the region’s premier reputation for winemaking and continue to produce exceptional wines today by carrying on the rich legacy of both their home vineyard and Sonoma’s celebrated growing regions. Frei Brothers Reserve begins by growing the best grapes in the best growing regions and ends with award-winning wines. Frei Brothers Reserve also believes in better choices and better wine–today and for generations to come. Led by chief viticulturist Jim Collins, the wines are a pure expression of the land, made from premium grapes carefully grown in some of the best wine-growing regions in Sonoma County, including the Russian River Valley, Alexander Valley and Dry Creek Valley. The winery crafts six critically acclaimed wines, including Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, and Zinfandel. Making better choices is also a part of the Frei Brothers Reserves sustainability journey that seeks to preserve natural resources without compromising the quality of the wine. The winery’s efforts have been certified by the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance and include some of the following programs: • For every acre of land planted in vineyard, Frei Brothers Reserve sets aside one acre to be preserved as natural habitat • When the winery at Frei Ranch needed to expand, the brand chose to transplant a row of 20 redwood trees rather than cut them down • Frei Brothers Reserve uses fewer harsh chemicals, creating less pollution and reducing energy output • The winery treats and reuses 80 percent of its wastewater for activities like irrigation and frost protection • When replanting, the winery chips old vines for use as compost instead of burning them For more information, visit Frei Brothers Reserve on Facebook at Facebook.com/FreiBrothersReserve Read less

Bought this "on sale" from Raleys, normally 31.99, down to 19.99. Was not disappointed. Fruity, dry and complex. A perfect cab on its own, and good with food... even grilled chicken.

I have to agree with the review given by judgelog. Well balanced. This is a good cab to me. I paid around $20.00; not the greatest bang for your buck.

A lovely Cab made in a drink-me-now style, this polished Alexander Valley beauty is soft and elegant. It has impressively rich blackberry, currant, mocha, anise and tobacco flavors, with a earthy edge of olive tapenade and cola.

Shows the delicate softness of Alexander Valley Cabernet, with the elegance that good viticulture and winemaking can bring to wine. This is a really drinkable Cabernet, but itrsquo;s not a simple one. Shows layers of complexity in the way the ripe fruit, oak, tannins and acids all play off each other.

More backward, but still impressive is the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon. Its deep, dark ruby color is followed by notes of creosote, roasted herbs, tobacco leaf, black currants, and cherries. This smoky, medium to full-bodied, impressively endowed Cabernet should drink well for a decade.

The dark ruby/purple-tinged, medium-bodied 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits classic aromas of spicy oak, black currants, tobacco leaf, and licorice. With light tannins as well as flesh and richness, this well-priced wine is best consumed over the next 7ndash;8 years.

Tasting Notes:

Our 2007 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has intense aromas of cassis, dark berries and toasty oak. Firm, velvety tannins complement the flavors of blackberry, raspberry, cedar and tobacco. Subtle hints of vanilla and dark chocolate linger in a long, elegant finish.

The grapes for this wine were gently destemmed but not crushed, leaving a significant number of whole berries for fermentation. The must received approximately 10 days of skin contact to enhance the extraction of vivid color and intense flavors. Temperatures were closely monitored and kept at approximately 85°F during fermentation to yield a richer, rounder mouthfeel and body in the wine. Malolactic fermentation added complexity and softened the wine's acid structure.
