More redux, light grassy top note, little sweet toasty spice, plummy, spicy with a hint of sweet spices and a suggestion of pepper. Soft on the palate and loose, aromatic in the mouth. Nice violet, mulberry fruit. Perfumed up front then not a huge finish, juicy on the back end. 85pts

Leuchtend rot, lila eingefärbte Farbe. In der Nase würzig, reif von roten und schwarzen Beeren mit einer leichten Note von Tabak und Schokolade. Der Geschmack ist saftig und rund im Gaumen, mit einer samtigen Textur, im Nachgeschmack rote Früchte und würzige Aromen.

With dark-berry aromas and pointed toughness, this is a solid wine with creamy oak, some stickiness and a lactic element. Flavors of herbal dark fruits and minty oak lead to a dry, minty, hot and spicy finish with more than enough residual oak flavor.

This lovely chardonnay has a complex nose consisting of honeycomb, tropical fruit, gardenia, spice, orange, and caramel. On the palate, these aromas are confirmed with a pleasing acidity, and a long finish.

92 points and a "Smart Buy," Wine Spectator: "Quite toasty, with cocoa powder and espresso notes up front, followed by muscular macerated currant and fig fruit flavors mingling with a maduro tobacco hint. The long, fleshy finish has a nice graphite edge lurking underneath. Needs to settle in, but should age nicely. Drink now through 2010. 800 cases made." (06/09)

The 2010 Cuvee Alexandre was #68 on the Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2012. The winery is 100% gravity-fed spanning six levels. This rare vertical design allows the wine to flow naturally downward during every stage of the production, avoiding the need to pump, which can adversely affect the subtle flavours of the wine.

A perennial Best Buy Cab. The nose is smoky and rock-solid, with clean berry fruit and muscle. The palate is lively and secure, with balance, firm tannins, proper acidity and a tasty mix of cocoa, herbs and berry fruit. Finishes on the spot.
