Michael Pozzan Alexander Valley Special Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
This wine shows its deep concentration in its color with a deep plum color and brick red edges. Aromatically the wine possesses classic Bordeaux notes with deep cherry, cassis and integrated vanillin. On the palate the wine is super concentrated with black cherry jam and spicy Cabernet Sauvignon flavors with a silky, supple texture, perfect balance in its acidity and a hint of black olive typical of Alexander Valley terrior. The wine finishes generously with fresh crushed cherries, sappy French oak and a hint of pipe tobacco and cassis.
This wine pairs best with organically raised filet mignon grilled medium rare and seasoned with savory herbs like oregano and marjoram and severed with brussel sprouts in a balsamic reduction. Its also nice with flat bread with eggplant, wild mushrooms, a smoky barbeque sauce and topped with buffalo mozzarella.
Wine EnthusiastAn easy Cabernet, soft and fruity, great for drinking now, at a pretty good price. It's dry and gentle in the mouth, with some real complexity, combining ripe cherries and blackberries with suggestions of dried herbs, cocoa and tobacco.
