  • If I were a somm, I’d be looking at Alexander Valley Cabernet. It’s a story waiting to be told, and worth the telling.

    – Steve Heimoff
  • The 2013 vintage of Alexander Valley Cabernet may go down as one of the top vintages in the last 20 years. Not only are the wines brimming with luscious fruit but there is a balance that keeps them grounded and true to the character of great Alexander Valley Cabernets of the past.
