2016 Alexander Valley Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

August 17, 2018 - Norman Bentley
#32-18-PIE

Our cousin, on his last visit, brought us a bottle of 2016 Alexander Valley Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon which we really liked. I have liked this wine in the past, but have not sampled one in several years. Like many Cabs these days, this one is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, and small amounts of Cab Franc. Malbec, and Petit Verdot. It is 100% delicious!

The nose highlights cherries, currants, and cassis. The flavors are fat and juicy with an abundance of black cherry, dominating background flavors of plum, black currant, and a bit of spice. The finish is smooth, and yet bold, with gobs of big fruit in the aftertaste, which begs for another sip! The alcohol content is 14%, and Norm's score is 90.

This is a wonderful Cab which would be great with any grilled meat straight from the Barbie, and would also pair well with your favorite Italian Veal dish.

price : $18 - $22

score: 90
