Collection Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes were brought to the winery and immediately crushed. Hot fermentation occurred at 85 degrees with select pure wine yeasts resulting in a rapid and complete fermentation. The juice was pressed at dryness and malolactic followed fermentation. The wine was bottled after 8 months of cellar aging in August of 2011.

Tasting Notes:

Robust aromas of espresso and rich Belgian chocolate segue into juicy blackberry and black cherry fl avors warmed with hints of anise and cinnamon. The complex combination of assertive fruit, earthiness and spice creates a long, smooth finish. In a word…opulent.
