Wattle Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes This densely structured Cabernet shows rich lifted aromas of blackberry, cassis and plum, complimented by the smoky complexities of French oak. Vibrant flavors of ripe blackcurrant and cassis follow, with notes of toasted oak and a fine grain of tannin contributing to the profile and complexity of this wine. Try it with a grilled rib-eye and a sweet potato mash. Enjoy!

Christopher and Kristine Williams were busy raising their family in Arizona when they received a call from a Sonoma County friend that would change their lives. A rare opportunity to purchase an Alexander Valley vineyard had presented itself and the Williams quickly boarded a plane to California in 1994 to view the property. They were captivated with the beauty of the area and the special nature of the hillside property which is bordered by the famed Russian River. Within a day they made the decision to purchase the magical 56 acres that later became Wattle Creek Winery. Family and dogs in tow, they relocated permanently to California in 2001 and dedicated themselves to making wine that they and their friends would enjoy. We're proud to produce wines that are almost exclusively Estate grown. You may not hear this term often, because many wineries purchase their grapes or their juice from outside the winery. Estate grown means that we have ultimate control over the quality and consistency of the wines which are made from our Alexander Valley and Yorkville Highlands vineyards. Chris and Kristine decide at harvest if the quality of a particular varietal is up to Wattle Creek standards. and if it's not. well, it doesn't go into a Wattle Creek bottle. It goes to the market to be sold to the other guys. Wattle Creek wines reflect the best and brightest of our vineyards. That's the only way we can guarantee to our customers and club members that they will receive the quality they've come to expect from Wattle Creek. Year in and year out. The Wattle Creek tasting room is located in San Francisco's historic Ghirardelli Square and is open seven days a week. We are open Monday through Saturday 11:00am-9:00pm Sunday 11:00am-7:00pm Read less

Wattle Creek is a small family owned winery with a 32 acre vineyard in Alexander Valley. Since their launch back in the mid-1990’s they have been turning out very limited quantities of exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon produced from their estate vineyard. This 2005 is the latest release and it shows the beautiful focus and intensity that Alexander Valley fruit is famous for. It shows rich flavors of cassis, plum and black cherry complemented by coca, black olive and smoky oak. Less than 900 cases were produced so it’s very limited. Don’t miss it while it’s on sale.
