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.
On first opening the nose consists of sour pie cherries with strong mineral notes. The palate is currant, toast and spice with a lingering cedar spice finish. With air the nose develops dark currant notes as does the palate with a finish that has more toasty character to the spices.
rich nose of blackcurrant and berries....full bodied with supple tannins with a long finish
Good, but not as good as the 2006 or the 2005. Not as much depth on the palate as previous years. Good nose and easy drinking. A nice wine but lacks that little tad more structure that past years have had.Cheers!
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.'
External Reviews for Alexander Valley Vineyards
right aromatics and lively fruit are the hallmarks of this grape and they are clearly in the spotlight in this vintage. There's big blueberry and mocha flavors here along with a bit of black olive and some earthiness. This wine will drink great upon release or can be cellared for up to five years. Like Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc loves to be paired with red meats. But because the wine is less tannic, Cab Franc is often more versatile than its more regal cousin. A sausage pizza would work fine, for instance as would a dish like soy-marinated tuna.

Soft and easy, this Cabernet has flavors of blackberries, cherries, herbs and sweet oak. It's an easy wine to drink now with steaks and chops.
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.
Food Pairings for Alexander Valley Vineyards
Concentrated, rich and intense, the 5-Star General offers a full-force Cabernet experience. The silken core reveals layers of flavors wrapped in plush tannins. A tight yet juicy mix of cedar, wild berry and black currant fuse with hints of anise, eucalyptus and a mineral essence to linger into the finish. Best to give this General some breathing room before serving, or a few more years in the cellar.
