Slightly hot nose and bright fruit. Good price, pleasant but slightly rough tannins keep it from getting a better rating from me. Read more

A very nice Cabernet Sauvignon that is more than acceptable for an every day occasion. The wine has enough complexity to mix with most foods but is not over powering. Bought it at CostCo for $11.99 which is a great price.

Of the cabs I've tried, I like this one quite a bit. It isn't quite the full-bodied wine that others might like--it has a heavy fruit (mostly plum and black cherry). The tanins, here, aren't excessive. A slight chill makes it quite lively.

Slightly hot, earthy nose. Good, dense fruit, fairly well balanced, especially for a 2005, so many of which are medicinal and over ripe. Pretty decent, and if you're looking for '05 recommended...

A bit on the dry side for a cabernet, but not too bad.

Wine Tasting NotesAromas of blackberry, cocoa, and cedar lead to a rich, layered mouthfeel, replete with black cherry, vanilla, and cassis, and structured with lush, mature tannins.

Aromas of blackberry, cocoa, and cedar lead to a rich, layered mouthfeel, replete with black cherry, vanilla, and cassis, and structured with lush, mature tannins. Enjoy this seductive cabernet sauvignon now and over the next several years.

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 the grapes come from Rodney Strong estate vineyards, the first of which, Alexander's Crown was plant in 1971. 98% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1.5% Merlot and .5% Malbec aged in fine oak barrels for 25 months.

Winemaker's Notes:

It's been over thirty vintages since Harry and Maggie Wetzel moved their family up from Southern California so that their children could "experience swimming in a river." After years of producing distinctive, dynamic wines, the 3rd generation of Wetzels is now going green, planting cover crops, installing solar panels and digging caves for natural insulation. Cool.
