Alexander Valley Cabernet '07 Rioja Spain la Mancha Albardiales 2009
Editorial Reviews for Alexander Valley Cabernet '07 Rioja Spain la Mancha Albardiales
Very expressive on the nose with a nice balance of black toasted spices and gentle ripe herbal notes accenting the ripe black currant fruit. Bright and lively in the mouth with great clarity and nice intensity without much weight. This offers up beautiful black cherry fruit supported by ripe tannins in an elegant, pure, classic California Cabernet style. There's a touch of wood sweetness on the backend and the fruit is perhaps a bit simple but this is so Cabernet, and frankly a lot of fun to drink. Delicious wine. 90pts
My Rating 87. Nice nose with hint of honey melon, Body fruity and lively with glycerin smooth mouthfeel . has not too much complexity
This review is for Sin Zin 2009 (Alexander Valley Zinfandel) - I remember previous vintages being much better. At least it still comes with a cork. Although easy to drink, I find this vintage to be simple fruity and uninspired (86 pts).
Definitely worth the price.
Smooth zin. Had in Hilton Head w/ Easter dinner 2013.
I like it very well.
This was one of my favorite wines; I like them big and smokey, this one was smoldering of oak and tobacco, Love It! That is, the 2007 vintage. I've since tried the 2009 vintage and it is good too, not as good though.
Three and a half glasses

aromas of chocolate laced with cinnamon, blackberry, plum, black cherry and exotic wood spice. On the palate, a velvety entry is followed by concentrated black cherry and red plum fruit accented with toffee. It finishes with a hint of roasted coffee. Supp
On the nose you will find aromas of black cherry, plum, cassis, cocoa and some earthy notes In the glass there are flavors of black cherry, plum, cassis, chocolate and slight eucalyptus. The 2009 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most elegant cabs I have produced in recent years.
Aromas of raspberry, plum, black cherry, and a touch of citrus. Flavors of plum, black cherry, black pepper, spice and pomegranate fill the glass.
