The 2006 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon combines full body
and richness with moderate alcohol. It has a garnet color and a nose of
cassis liqueur, nutmeg and dark chocolate. On the palate, it has a rich,
mouth-coating attack, great expression of fruit, a full-body and beautifully
integrated tannins that lead to a long, spicy finish. Given proper cellaring,
this wine will give drinking pleasure through 2026.
