This highly anticipated release from the acclaimed 2012 vintage say many winemakers excited about exceptional growning conditions. As our winemaker Nate Weis puts it, "Some years winemakers earn their keep by taking an acive role. Other years we earn our keep by knowing when to just stay out of Mother Nature's way. The key is knowing the difference."
The result with our 2012 vintage is a lively, ful-bodied expression of Alexander Valely Cabernet of rare vitality and structural balance. Its lovely garnet color opens with aromas of black currant, orange zest and raspberry. The rich attach gives way to a mid-palate of both breadth and depth, supported with refreshing acidity and integrated dusty tannins.
