User Reviews for Ruston "Lost Acre" Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Winemaker's Notes:

This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the Lost Acre Vineyard northeast of Healdsburg in the Alexander Valley. The vines here are planted in close-spaced Bordeaux style, and the vineyard produces wines that recall the great northern California Cabernets of the 1960’s and 1970’s. If you are looking for some of the hallmarks of extreme versions of modern Napa Cabernet -- ultra-ripe, over oaky, chocolate and raisiny flavors, etc. -- you won’t find them here. This is a medium-bodied, elegant, beautifully balanced wine that is a showcase for the taste of pure Cabernet Sauvignon. It is very silky and drinkable now, a wine that makes you reach for another glass.
