Nose was smooth and rich with blackberry and cranberry. On the palate we got tart berries and flat Dr Pepper underneath from the hints of black cherry and malty caramel. Tannins and acidity were mellow overall. Finish was short with some berries and pear. For the price, we expected more complexity.

This wine’s clean red fruit expands with air, developing subtle notes of cassis and spice. It's an elegant cabernet, ready to decant and an easy match for roast leg of lamb.

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.

Winemaker 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.

This red displays savory herb, sage, cedar and currant notes, with a licorice edge to the dried berry flavors. Drink now through 2016.

You get lots of rich, extracted blackberry, cherry and mocha flavors in this sweet, softly tannic young wine. For the price, itandrsquo;s a classy wine to drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

Within its narrow confines, Alexander Valley provides a surprisingly diverse array of terroirs for Cabernet Sauvignon. The best lots for this wine came from well-drained hillside and benchland vineyards located above the valley floor. In 2006, we further refined our Cabernet program with particular attention to our estate Cabernet vineyards, as well as to minute variations in ripeness levels within a given vineyard. By picking only specific rows, or blocks, of vines at a particular time, and then fermenting these block separately, we were able to ensure optimal ripeness and quality.
