Geyser Peak Walking Tree Vineyard Alexander Cabernet 2007
The deep ruby color of this sumptuous Cabernet gives way to expressive aromas of white pepper, dark berry fruit and cassis. Aging in French oak barrels softens the otherwise firm tannins and introduces hints of toasted vanilla and leather on the palate. Luscious blueberry and blackberry flavors are refined and perfectly balanced by a spiciness that lingers on a long and elegant finish.
The color is a deep brooding garnet that is so characteristic of a nice quality Cabernet from the Alexander Valley. The nose has a distinct note of mint overlaying some nice leather, dark chocolate and mossy granite notes. The taste is an explosion of intense cherry that gracefully transitions to some black pepper and Asian spice notes midpalate. The finish is just lovely, with some rather tightly wound tannins supporting a lush mouthfeel and a long, dry finish that seems to last for a minute or more!

tastes like vinegar.
Deep-Inky red in color, this wine has aromas of black cherry, vanilla and spicy oak. This wine drinks as smoothly as any cab I've ever enjoyed. This wine will immediately coat the mouth with dark, ripe fruit and vanilla from french oak, along with notes of spice. Can you say TANNINS? You'll be tasting the back-end of this wine for weeks. Enjoy with a juicy steak.
