CABERNET IS KING amongst the vines.
CABERNET SAUVIGNON is the most widely grown varietal in Alexander Valley with best results in the foothills, slopes and mountains of the eastern side of the valley, which is the western side
of the Mayacama Mountains.
Vigorous, late budding and late ripening. Thrives in well-drained gravelly soils, Cabernet Sauvignon grows best in warm, hot arid regions and perfect in Alexander Valley, the warmest winegrowing appellation
in Sonoma County.
Deep, dark in color, bold tannin structure, and relatively high in acid structure.
Alexander Valley characteristics: Black fruit, dry tobacco, dry herbs, dusty, less gritty, dry, elegantly structured, therefore very age-worthy.
