Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Sonoma Valley, California, $26.99

Alexander Valley Vineyards is located in the heart of Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley on the historic property settled in the 1840s by valley namesake, Cyrus Alexander. The Wetzel Family purchased the original homestead in 1962, continuing a tradition of family farming on the site. From the beginning they treasured the spot they call home and took steps to preserve it for future generations. In 2008 Hank and Linda Wetzel began organically farming a single small Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard planted with Clone 4 and Clone 6. The vineyard was certified organic in 2011 by CCOF (California Certified Organic Farmers).

This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is fruit forward with great balance and a medium mouthfeel. In the glass are earthy aromas of dark fruits, cassis, chocolate and clove, along with flavors of cherry, cassis, blackberry, plum, spice, oak and chocolate. This wine has good structure and a long juicy finish.
