2017 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Alexander Valley

Winemaker's Notes

Our 2017 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon grows on our Chalk Hill vineyard in Alexander Valley, the home of Bill an Yvonne Kreck . This 44 acre ranch is ideal for producing the high quality fruit that will become our Reserve Cabernet. The fruit was hand harvested on September 27, 2017 and delivered to our winery in southern Dry Creek Valley. Clusters were gently de-stemmed and fermented in small tanks over a period of 14 days. The skins and seeds were punched-down 3 times a day to ensure exceptional extraction of flavors, color and tannins form the skins. After pressing, the wine was moved to French Oak barrels and aged for approximately 22 months.

Tasting Notes

Our 2017 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon showcases the exceptional terrior of the Alexander Valley. The bouquet captivates with intriguing aromas of bing cherry, tobacco, and a hint of vanilla, imparted by aging in French oak barrels. On the palate, this wine doesn't disappoint with flavors of moderate dried spice that transition seamlessly into a long, elegant finish with just a touch of sumptuous caramel and brown sugar. This wine can be enjoyed now or cellared for many years.  For a harmonious dining experience, we recommend enjoying our 2017 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon alongside meals such as a succulent prime rib seasoned with rosemary and garlic, a rich blue cheese-stuffed filet mignon, or a classic osso buco. These dishes beautifully echo the wine's bing cherry and spice notes while complementing its long, caramel-tinged finish.
