Editorial Reviews for Alexander Valley Vineyards
Raspberry candy and root beer greet the nose backed by a lovely, tense steely tone. Sweetly fruited with watermelon jolly ranchers and black raspberry fruits that are sweet and supple yet quite focused. This really has a wonderful mouthfeel, it’s still a little tight and rigid, and quite refreshing. The tannins are still just a touch stiff even if they are very well balanced and the wine can stand a bit of time in the bottle but it’s certainly attractive right now. 90pts
The first time I tasted this, I absolutely fell in love. Cherry, plum, and (excellently balanced) black pepper make this fun to figure out food pairings, as well as sip along with a cigar or pipe.
Cherry on the nose with a little pepper. Dark through the middle with light coming through on the edges. Nice spice with dark fruit forward to start. Long finish. A nice wine to start the evening with. Have a haunted house to attend to support the local Humane Society.
Nose of green apple, pear, and citrus with more green apple and citrus on the palate with a lengthy creamy finish.
A solid Gewurz that manages to be fairly spicy, without moving across the line to 'hot.'
Interesting taste profile typical of a medium-bodied cabernet. Most memorable was an extremely smooth finish.
Deep purple color. Chocolatey currant flavor.
We had this wine with steak made on a gas grill. I let it breath for 30 minutes and was still had tannin taste. Second glass 20 minutes later was smoother. Next time I'd let this breath for at least an hour before drinking.
External Reviews for Alexander Valley Vineyards
The Wetzel family has farmed this vineyard since 1963, and the current edition of their cabernet chows straightforward cassis flavors which would be just right with roast duck.
A bit chewy, with ripe berry overtones - currant, blackberry and a hint of raisin. Smoke and leather on the nose, with a bright, long finish.
This is a wine destined for greatness. The 2005 is a rich, juicy Cab with an expressive nose of cassis and spice, and flavors of black cherry and cocoa 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.
A rustic range of well-integrated, juicy black cherry, mineral and herb flavors that linger on the finish where the tannins are mild. Drink now through 2000.
