In 2018, a wet winter led into a dry and evenly warm season, resulting in gradual ripening and a relaxed and controlled harvest. Our Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a transparent expression of the vintage, where the keyword is balance. The 2018 Vintage is rich and opulent, yet detailed, restrained in style, and terroir-driven, due to its fully ripe, but not overripe, style. 

Winemaker: Lukasz Stanko

Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon (100%)

AVA: Alexander Valley

Barrel aging: 28 months French oak (25% new)

Alc.: 14.9%

Production: 48 cases

Tasting Notes: An intoxicating nose of red and black cherries, kirsch, dusky plums, blackberry, and sweet French oak introduce expressive flavors of cassis, dark berries, graphite, and vanilla, balanced by refreshing acidity, all enveloped by firm yet supple tannins and an impressively lingering finish. This vintage of Alexander Valley Cabernet displays impeccable balance, with not a single feature out of harmony or balance.
