Chateau Souverain Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Alexander Valley's climate mixes coastal and inland elements. Vineyards warmed by daytime temperatures in the 80s and low 90s rapidly cool as evening approaches. Low pressure created by inland heating draws strong marine breezes north into the region in the late afternoon. At night, fog from the Pacific Ocean flows up the Russian River channel and lingers into the morning, keeping many vineyards cool and shaded until nearly mid-day. Grapes have the luxury to ripen slowly, developing higher acidity, a lower pH, good color and mature varietal fruit characteristics.
