A big, brooding Alexander Valley Cabernet. Has the trademark Sonoma nose of dried dark fruits, bramble, herbs and spice - along with a noticeable amount of heat. Full-bodied and very rich. There's phenomenal depth and intensity to the tangy blackberry and dark currant fruit here. Lovely notes of spice, licorice and mesquite linger on the long, juicy finish, though a touch of heat is evident at the very end. Huge and very powerful, but not too over-the-top. This is delcious now, but should be even better in a few years' time after it softens a bit and the alcohol integrates. 50+5+12+17+8=92
