1221 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon
This mouth-watering 1221 Cabernet Cuvee selection really has a big personality. A large portion of grapes came from the highly acclaimed Cabernet Sauvignon region of Sonoma County: Alexander Valley.
Alexander Valley has been growing coveted Cabernet grapes for over 150 years. Viticulture in the area dates back to 1843, when Cyrus Alexander used vines cuttings collected from Fort Ross on the Pacific coast, to establish vineyards in the area. And the rest is Cabernet history.
It is silky, subtle yet robust and bold. Concentrated fruit clusters produce intricate flavors and aromas.
The aromas are reminiscent of black licorice and ripe blackberries.
The flavors carry the black fruits along with an ample amount of black currants, coffee, and a dusting of black pepper.
The toasty oak is well integrated in this full-bodied wine.
The 1221 Cabernet Cuvee would be well suited for meat and game dishes. Filet mignon w/a black peppercorn sauce, lamb chops w/rosemary, stuffed roasted quail.
