Description

In the late 1960s we bottled a few cases of cabernet sauvignon for friends and family. Those first few cases of homemade wine inspired the vision for our estate winery alexander valley vineyards and our flagship wine cabernet sauvignon. The western drought continued in 2015 and was once again the topic of much discussion. A cool spring rain at bloom and hot july along with the continued effects from the lack of rain contributed to lower yields. As a result the grapes had terrific concentration and superb fruit flavors at harvest. After harvest the different lots were de-stemmed fermented separately then aged in 25% new american and french oak barrels for 14 months. The 2015 cabernet sauvignon is a classic alexander valley wine with medium body great fruit flavors and smooth structured tannins. Winemaker kevin hall added 11% merlot for structure a touch of cabernet franc for floral notes and malbec and petit verdot for color.
