Food Pairings for Forefathers Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley
This was our NYE steak dinner wine. Bursting with blackberries and oak. Very decadent. Even after a two hour decant it was extremely powerful. $50 is actually a steal as I would definitely rather drink this than an Opus One or something similar.
Forefathers Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a 5.5 acre single vineyard on a small knoll in the Alexander Valley. From this knoll we selected the east facing slope to avoid the hot afternoon temperatures that can lead to dehydration and elevated sugars. This knoll is east of the town of Geyserville and is comprised of a gravelly loam soil, which allows for good drainage, great exposure of the clusters due to the open canopy and long hang time. We get more power and weight from Lone Tree than the typical Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard. And most Alexander Valley wines are higher in alcohol expressing primarily red fruit flavors. Forefathers Lone Tree shows medium-alcohol, black fruit flavors and a round mouthfeel with supple tannins. Cheers!
