Landslide Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley 2016
This vintage, our Landslide Vineyard produced a wine that is youthful and elegant, with deep fruit character. Opaque and deep red with a vibrant ruby edge. The nose shows violets, blackberry, chocolate, cassis, and bramble berry, with notes of toasty oak. Inviting, fresh, and intriguing, this wine will continue to integrate flavors and aromas over time. Savory, dense flavors of dried blueberry, bramble berry, and dark cocoa are followed by a broad mid-palate. Toasty, sweet oak frames the fruit and lends structure. The wine finishes with chewy tannins and a touch of vanilla. The acid balance makes this wine inviting, rich, and delicious.

The wine will benefit from decanting.
