Alexander Valley Vineyards 2004 Alexander School Top of the Crop Cabernet Sauvignon (Alexander Valley)

Cellar Selection

This is a limited-production line from this venerable winery. It's a very dense, focused Cab, a little too tightly wound to pop the cork quite yet. There's a sharp pine or balsam zinginess that's a combination of smoky oak and deeply ripe cassis, fresh and zesty and dry. The wine needs time for all this to mellow. Best after 2008, and for a decade beyond.
