Alexander Valley Vineyards Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Alexander Valley|
|Brand||Alexander Valley Vineyards|
There are nearly 60,000 cases of the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. It exhibits Bordeaux-like notes of cedarwood, tobacco leaf, blackcurrants, licorice and fruitcake. Although not powerful, it is medium-bodied, well-made, surprisingly elegant, supple and fruit-forward. It should continue to drink well for 5-7 years.
