Food Pairings for Collection Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
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.
