I was impressed by the quality of this Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. It starts off with aromas of ripe blackberries and peppery spice. The flavors of black cherries and expresso are bright and fresh, with soft tannins. Serve with meat loaf and sauteacute;ed mushrooms.

Light cherry fruit and gruff, coffee-scented tannins meld into a soft and generous cabernet with a little air. Itandrsquo;s simple and juicy, to serve with roast lamb.

Founded in 1880 by Augustus Quitzow, one of Sonoma County's pioneer winemakers, the original winery was built in Geyserville in 1882. Today, Geyser Peak is one of the most award-winning wineries in Sonoma County.

The Alexander Valley offers an array of soils, exposures, and elevations in which to grow Cabernet Sauvignon. Blending components from the valley floor, benchlands, and hillsides allows us to produce a wine with great dimension from a single appellation. Our estate vineyards that surround the winery have become an important component of this wine and we work to optimize each vineyard block to produce fruit of great distinction and character. - WineryAPPELLATION: ALEXANDER VALLEYGRAPE VARIETY: CABERNET SAUVIGNON WITH SHIRAZ, PETIT VERDOT AND TANNATSTORAGE/TYPE: 100% AMERICAN OAK 20% NEW OAK, 80% A BALANCED MIXTURE OF ONE-, TWO- & THREE, YEAR OLD OAKMATURATION TIME: 15 MONTHSALCOHOL - 13.5%pH - 3.61T.A - 6.2 g/LR.S. - DRY

Winemaker's Notes:

Known for luscious Cabernet Sauvignons, this wine is a classic example of Geyser Peak Winery's intense, lively style. Forward fruit characters of black cherry and blackberry dominate the aromas, with underlying grace notes of dark chocolate and black pepper. In typical Geyser Peak style, the bright fruit is nicely supported by a restrained oak character. The palate is rich, round and lush, seamlessly pairing the cherry and berry fruit with a hint of spice and vanilla. The fine-grained tannins meld into a persistent, lingering finish.
