This 1996 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a dark ruby-red color and displays a rich nose of cassis syrup, black plum, chocolate and bay leaf. This wine has a medium body with a long finish of fruit and spice that will continue to improve through 2018, with proper cellaring.

Wine AdvocateThe dark ruby-colored 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley exhibits a pronounced smoky, espresso bean, and kirsch-scented nose. Round, dense, rich, full-bodied, and open-knit, its low acid flavors are undeniably appealing. Black olives make an appearance in the wine's aromatics as it sits in the glass. Anticipated maturity: now-2015.

Wine SpectatorShows an unusual roasted dill oak character. Dilute and woody on the palate, with a glimmer of dried currant fruit and a dry, tannic aftertaste.--1996 California Cabernet retrospective.

James Laube, 2007
