Save $35.03 (33%)
Our Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon reflects over forty years of winemaking in Sonoma County's Alexander Valley, a delicious and seamless expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from this historic California wine region made famous by this varietal. A blend of multiple vineyard sites including our Red Tail, Miraval and Geyserville Estate vineyards, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon gains complexity through the varied terroir found across Alexander Valley's hillsides, benchlands and valley floor. With exuberant dark fruit flavors and a rich and generous mid-palate, our Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is released six months ahead of our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon as its approachable, fruit-forward profile lends itself to earlier enjoyment.
Wine SpectatorExhibiting a mix of dusty, savory roasted herb, tobacco leaf, road tar and green underbrush flavors, this is a solid effort that needs time. Best from 2020 through 2030. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
Buehler Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013The wine is brimming with fruit aromas and flavors biased to the black fruit end of the Cabernet spectrum: plums, blackberry, and black currant. Rich and full-bodied on the palate, this Cabernet drinks well on release but will soften and develop with additional age. For those who seek youthful fresh Cabernet fruit aromas and a more structured wine, drink it from 2015 through 2019. If you prefer the less fruity, more developed bottle bouquet aromas and a softer, more velvety wine on the palate, drink it from 2020-2030.
Justin Cabernet Sauvignon 2015Appearance: Dark purple ruby core, slightly lighter at the rim showing light staining on the glass. Aroma: Aromatic with bright ripe black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, baking spice, savory dried autumn leaves, subtle violet floral notes with a hint of caramelized barrel sweetness. Palate: Dry, moderate plus bodied, with ripe red and black cherry, and blackcurrant fruit joined by vanilla and cinnamon spice notes on the entry. The mid-palate is fresh with sustained ripe fruit, toasty oak notes and softly textured tannins. The finish is moderately long with notes of cherry candy and blackcurrant fruit matched with subtle classic Cabernet savory elements. Pairings: The 2015 JUSTIN Cabernet Sauvignon is a great all-around choice for a wide range of food pairings from a simple cheese and charcuterie plate or a burger to vegetable lasagna, or even a prime rib. If you are looking for a quality, all-purpose red wine, this is it!
Mettler Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2014Our 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon shows off a deep, inky, purple-red color in the glass. It opens with inviting aromas of dark cherry, pepper, tobacco, mineral and earth. The graceful mingling of cherry, dark fruit and sweet oak flavors have a freshness of character and a whisper of clove. On the palate, the plush mouthfeel is moderated by juicy acidity, and the long, tannic finish is reminiscent of a fine Bordeaux. This elegant and poised Cabernet is accessible now, and its structure and complexity will see it through many years of aging.
Owen Roe Sharecropper's Cabernet Sauvignon 2013Always a crowd favorite, the 2013 vintage proves to be another great attempt at creating a fruit forward, yet bold Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine exudes juicy aromas of pomegranate, blackberry and tobacco spice. Flavors of jalapeno, hints of eucalyptus and mint and a balanced mouth-feel finish with bright acidity and firm tannins. We recommend opening this wine now and enjoying it at a young age, however, this will age well for 4-6 years when properly cellared.
Predator Cabernet Sauvignon 2013Predator Cabernet Sauvignon has that intense, distinctive flavor profile that we LOVE in the Zin. Smooth, spicy and a delicious dusting of cocoa on the finish. An intense, full-bodied wine with flavors of dark berries and spice. A smoky finish with firm yet refined tannins. VIBRANT AROMAS AND LUSH FLAVORS: Blackberry, dark chocolate, cinnamon and toasty oak.
