Pretty dark purple color. Nose of dark fruit. Black berries, black cherries. Very pure palate. I don't detect any oak at all on the nose or palate. Moderately tannic. Medium to long finish. Palate similar to nose with dark fruits. I think this wine needs some age to open up. Lots of potential. Aerated, then double aerated, the first few glasses with only moderate success in coaxing out more aromas and flavors. More to come...

Not a big, bold Cab, but a very tasty one. Balanced, juicy, decent finish.

Ruby, purple color, somewhat opaque. Nose: grape skittles, cherries, oak, warm baking spices. Palette: mostly confirms nose, with appealing tannins. A lot of oak on this wine for better or worse. Medium body. Would've guessed higher alcohol than what is listed (13.9). Overall, a decent CA cab for the $, but personally I wouldn't seek it out.

Good and balanced. Very fruity and lighter than many. Vaguely reminiscent of Chinon cab franc in its herby "green" character. A good buy for the price.

A lot of sediment and a bit on the vinegar taste. Perhaps a bad bottle.

Brought a bottle to In-Laws for Dinene's 50th Birthday family dinner. Solid bottle of wine. Not great, but good. Went well with the steak. Everyone seemed to enjoy it.

Drank from a 375 which I normally don't trust. This is an absolute stunner. Classic, big but not over extracted. Pretty nose of violets and wild berries. Wonderful. Changed my mind about Alexander valley.
Fantastic

4/10/2015 - Merky_Waters Likes this wine: 90 points

ripe and rich rose that will definitely be a staple in my Summer diet.

huge nose of red fruit, melon, honeysuckle, and tropical fruit.

surprisingly full body with juicy tannins and a hint of sweetness. definitely not bone dry or delicate. this is a rose for red wine drinkers.

will update notes when i buy my next bottle but i've already taken two of these to parties and they've been a tremendous hit.

Deep purple. Solid, decent California Cabernet. A bit on the structured/austere side rather than rich/deep. Not complex, but good accompaniment to food -- has some acidity. Initially fragrant, but fades with air.

Pineapple, peach, pear, honeysuckle and caramel. Nutty component with deep rich flavors. Probably a bit oxidized. We like this viognier but we are not viognier fans so it is probably not varietally correct. However we do like this wine.

Huge, flamboyant, even somewhat hedonistic. Bouquet of high quality oak, including a certain floral sweetness. Without any indication of Alexander Valley terroir. Jammy, ultra-ripe blue and black berry drenched palate. Excellent acid, strong structure, huge alcohol! Not my drink of choice, but Wow!!!...there's a lot of it!!!

We enjoyed a 2013 Alexander Valley Vineyards Gewurz. It was overt, in your face with gooseberry, rosewater and apricot aromas. It was rich and heady in the mouth with plenty of flavor and a skinsy, grape tannin feel to the finish. One glass is enough. I had two.
