Alexandria Nicole Quarry Butte 2009

Member Review by jtryka:

The wine is a rich, deep ruby color in the glass, with a nose that exhibits scents of ripe red fruit, blackberries, cherries and plums, along with a hint of vanilla, smoke and limestone. The taste is at once black fruit dominated, but that is quickly overwhelmed by the luscious, velvety mouthfeel of your first sip. The fruit transitions to some tart notes midpalate, along with just a hint of wild mint and gravel, giving some nice earth notes to balance it out. The finish is quite long and dry, as the bright tannins provide ample support, and a taste that seems to last until you're ready for your next sip.

Big, smokey fruit, oak, dark cherries, but well balanced with good structure and acidity. Will cellar for a bit, but a joy to drink now. Decanting recommended. A real great value.
