We glorify day-to-day living by introducing luxury products that were once considered stuffy and intimidating in a delightful and accessible manner. We encourage you to plop ice cubes in your glass of Rosato during the summertime; savor the naughty combination of chocolate bonbons with estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon; or serve American caviar and potato chips with Pinot Grigio -- just because you want to.

The 2008 Swanson Alexis Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep ruby color. The wine was not fined nor filtered, in order to maintain maximum flavor intensity and texture. On the nose, super-ripe black cherry and cassis mingle with blackberry and plum. Initial flavor is juicy, with sweeter concentrated black fruits, yielding to a firm, yet balanced underlayment of ripe, supple tannins and integrated French oak. Overall, the wine exhibits what we consistently strive for in making Alexis Cabernet- layers of nuanced flavors, a velvety texture and a persistent finish. This wine will continue to age gracefully through at least 2020. - WineryCOMPOSITION:86% Cabernet Sauvignon12% Merlot2% Petit VerdotBARREL REGIME:22 months in 100% French oak barrels, 60% newBRIX AT HARVEST: 25.5 averageALCOHOL: 14.8%pH AT BOTTLING: 3.62
