Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander Valley, 2004
Estate grown and bottled: Wetzel Family Estate. Forty years of grape growing in the Alexander Valley has given us a firm foundation from which to farm our prized cabernet sauvignon grapes. This has allowed us to fine-tune what has become known as the Alexander Valley style, Cabernet Sauvignon rich in color, concentrated fruit and moderate tannins. Small amounts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot complement this year's blend. Though quite approachable at release, this wine will continue to develop in the bottle for a decade or more. 14% Alcohol by volume.
