Sausal Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon, like all Sausal varietal, comes from 100% estate grown grapes. It is also 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, and so displays the true character and flavors of this widely known varietal.

A wonderfully fruit driven nose with deep, smoky, dried chili notes, leafy ripe black currant fruit, hints of black olive, leather, dill, and crushed flowers and just the faintest traces of oaken spice. A bit light on the palate with fresh red fruits topped with green herbs and sweet bell pepper tones. This lacks some of the complexity found on the nose but offers up a refreshingly pure mouthful of slightly minty, slightly herbaceous, coffee tinged, unabashedly Cabernet fruit and finishes with the fuzzy mouthgrab of fruit tannin. 91pts

Made with grapes from 100+ year old vines, this is a cab to treasure.

Delicious strawberry, rich and silky fruit with soft tannins and rich viscosity. Served with New York strip with balsamic vinegar marinade. Alexander Valley fruit shines in this fruit forward yet balanced wine. Not as austere as a Napa Cab however I'd love to match this wine in a blind tasting with a Caymus or Silver Oak from Napa.
