Surprisingly good, particularly for this price. It has a floral scent and a very rich flavor. The taste is very gentle, but elegant and meaningful, with a beautiful color as well as a fresh taste of black cherry. You won't regret buying one.

Composed of 99% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Malbec aged 19 months in French oak (47% new), the 2008 Grand Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon displays an inky/purple color as well as abundant aromas of creme de cassis, camphor, tobacco leaf, licorice and background smoky oak. This rich, full-bodied Cabernet admirably showcases the potential for rich, layered, ageworthy Cabernet Sauvignon from Sonoma. It will benefit from another 1-2 years of bottle age and should keep for at least 12 years. Rated 90+

Black cherry and blackberry flavors fill the mouth and are accented by subtle vanilla, spice and cedar.

Smooth and simple, with modest cherry and currant flavors that finish with an herbal, menthol note and modest tannins.

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Grand Reserve explodes from the glass with black fruit, grilled herbs, licorice, smoke and tar. The Grand Reserve reveals tons of energy and exceptional overall balance. In 2009 the blend is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, 3% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, all from the Alexander Mountain Estate Vineyard. Anticipated maturity: 2012ndash;2016.

This is a pretty good Cab, with polished flavors of blackberries, cherries, dried herbs and coffee. The tannins are smooth and chunky, leading to a slightly astringent finish.

The 2008 Grand Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon displays an inky/purple color as well as abundant aromas of creme de cassis, camphor, tobacco leaf, licorice and background smoky oak.

Even better is the 2008 Vintner's Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. It is made from 100% estate fruit with 70% coming from Sonoma and 30% from Napa. A blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot, this serious Cabernet exhibits a deep ruby/purple-tinged hue as well as notes of cedar, charcoal, black cherries, licorice and herbs. Medium-bodied and rich with silky tannins and surprisingly abundant richness and extract, it should drink nicely for 5-6 years, perhaps longer.

Winemaker's Notes:

In true Cabernet fashion, this fruit forward wine is great with any hearty meal. This Cab is a true crowd pleaser on any occasion. The Sonoma County mountain, ridge and hillside fruit brings the wine its black plum, cherry, currant and chocolate flavors while Napa County mountain and benchland vineyards add boysenberry, cedar and violet notes.
