Wine Tasting NotesThe 1987 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a medium ruby-red color with a nose of strawberry fruit. It has a light body, with some fruit in the finish. Enjoy now, it may need decanting due to light sediment. Some bottle to bottle variation is apparent in this vintage; some bottles are past their prime, others are peaking now.
