Souverain Winemaker's Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
Deep ruby with a purple edge, this reserve reflects the best of the vintage in Alexander Valley. A densely packed Cab which exhibits the typical black cherry, wild blackberry and cassis for which this appellation is known. The extended aging in superbly coopered new barrels has integrated the thick tannins and layered nuances of vanilla, espresso, baking spices and leather onto the already complex fruit aromas and flavors. This is a muscular Cabernet, typical of the vintage, which will age well over the next 10 years, but has plenty of accessible ripeness to appreciate upon release.
At Souverain, our goal is to make authentic wines that are the best expression of each varietal and Alexander Valley. We believe our consumers deserve to drink great wine every night, so our wines are exceptional & attainable. Our love affair with producing wines has stretched back over 60 years and during that time our award winning wines have received numerous accolades and praise from the wine press.
