Lots of green in this one. Others at dinner party liked it though. Of the 3 bottles I brought, this one was my least favorite by a long shot. Typical Rodney Strong cab, but a lot of bitter green flavors.

The Alexander Valley signature, or terroir, is evident in this delicious cabernet: bold fruit aromas and flavors centered on red plum and boysenberry, and a rich and mouthfilling texture with soft tannins, all of which we’ve framed in the finest oak barrels for 18 months.

Winemaker's Notes:

Alexander's Crown Vineyard produced the first Vineyard Designated Cabernet Sauvignon in Sonoma County. Planted by Rod Strong in 1971, the first vintage was the unforgettable 1974, which placed Sonoma County, and the Alexander's Crown, indelibly on "the map", not to mention garnering top honors by winning the Sweepstakes award at the Sonoma County Harvest Fair. Since then, it has continued to gain prominence over the years.The Crown enjoys the coolest growing conditions of our cabernet vineyards, a major factor in its distinctive flavor profile. We grow 3 different clones of cabernet in Clough, Pleasanton, and Positas series soils, all gravelly loams with slopes in almost every direction. Every change in soil, slope, and direction provides opportunities for complexity, and in keeping with our philosophy, each unique section of the Crown vineyard is harvested separately, vinified separately, and reassembled artfully into the multifaceted cabernet that we've known for thirty years. Blackberry, red currant, and fresh earth are core flavors with the Crown, and are accented by hints of mint and herbs. 20 months in primarily French oak adds a subtle toasty spice component, and both rounds and softens this elegant, Bordeaux d Cabernet into a graceful expression of the varietal that will entreat you to enjoy another glass. Drink this classic "collector's" Cabernet Sauvignon over the next 4 to 8 years.2004 Acclaim: GOLD - International Eastern Wine Competition, June 2007 GOLD, 92 Points, "Exceptional" - BTI 2008 World Wine ChampionshipsSugar: 0.04Oak: 83% French, 17% American
