Food Pairings for Alexander Valley Mercantile Cabernet Sauvignon
this went perfectly with a thin crust mushroom spinach pizza.
A potent, full bodied cab franc! I was presented with 10 to taste at work today and this was by far my favorite. Just being opened on my first taste, it was extremely concentrated and reminiscent of a young Cab Sauv. After letting it sit a few hours, this thing is incredible! Loads of cherry with hints of spice. A definate caramel flavor. Very fruit forward, but balanced. Tannins are firm but not rigid. An absolute crowd pleaser. My Rating: 89/100 For the price: 96/100
weird. astringent mouthfeel Lemon snapple finish. not the tastiest.
Tasted better in the tasting room. Didn't feel like it was in balance. Maybe the individual bottle that I had.
Opaque plum, with aromas of berry bramble, sweet wood and baking spices, flavors of boysenberries, black plums and black raspberries with spice. Good body and balance with a lingering finish. This is the best of this 2005 series.
Nice wine, flavorful fruit taste.
Color: very bright medium-light red with fuchsia undertones Nose: Charcoal grilled steak, roasted tomatoes, lots of fresh cherries and wet rocks... and some black pepper Flavor Profile: Loads and loads of fruit, concord grapes, more cherries, white peppers, strawberries... also some fruit soda (artificial) fruit flavors. Decent mouthfeel... maybe a little flabby Finish: medium strength tannins and strong acid are overpowered by the alcohol. The wine is definitely a little unbalanced. Chocolate flavors linger.

"The wine is then aged for two years in French oak followed by 8 months in the bottle. The Cabernet Sauvignon for the hails from three different vineyards
Wine Tasting NotesTemptation Zin is loaded with plum, cocoa and most prominently, Bing cherry character. The mouth feel is plush and the finish long. Temptation Zin is a perfect complement to what is now our trio of Zinfandels and its bottled with a screwcap. Twist and enjoy!
"The 2005 is half Syrah and half Merlot. The Syrah side offers some floral notes along with elements of blueberry and a bit of earthiness. For its part
along with an undercurrent of eucalyptus and mint. The wine is already displaying a lot of concentration and depth, indicating it should keep getting better and better. Winery
Creamy aromatics of understated dark-skinned fruit and berries mix with toasty oak and a hint of forest floor. Well-integrated flavors of dark-toned fruit—plum, cassis and boysenberry—mingle with cedar and mocha-laced oak notes. The additional barrel and bottle aging contribute to the wine’s the richness and depth, and the youthful acidity lends itself to endless food pairings and additional bottle aging. If you can keep from enjoying the wine now, it is a notable cellar candidate.
