Sebastiani Vineyards & Winery

Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

This wine is inky looking and carries a wonderfully demonstrative package of aromas. The nose has classic notes of graphite, but also features black tea, sage, oregano and a healthy lump of earth - that good, Sonoma dirt. On the palate are bright cherries, tea, herbs and minerals. The tannins are firm without being overbearing and the acidity is quite refreshing. You could chill this wine and open it next to the grill this summer - or you could have in cooler weather with a beef stew. — 15 days ago

Jordan Vineyard & Winery

Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Founded 1972, Tom & Sally Jordan, from CO, went to CA’s wine country & produced inaugural vintage in 1976. A Fav of mine with a steak, and the ‘17 hits the mark! Blend of mostly Cab Sauv with Merlot, Petit Verdot & Malbec. Deep Ruby with aromas of red fruit, floral & spice. On the palate flavors of cherry, blackberry and fig with oak, sweet spice, leather & cacao notes. Rich tannins, well balanced and integrated with fruit & oak. Very Nice! — 18 days ago

Estate Cuvée Cloverdale Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 1991

1991 Cabernet Sauvignon; Dried fruit, tobacco, and a smooth taste with touch of honey. Matches great with steak and when we let it breathe, it became fantastic with a grilled tomato, haloumi cheese, and pesto open faced charred baguette sandwich. — 4 days ago

This presents a steep slope in both directions in terms of character and presence. Bright, mineral-driven and just the right amount of acidity and sweetness establishes this as a benchmark in the category. — 12 days ago

The photography skills of aperture must have been inspiring… the bottle looks like it’s floating!

@Jonathan Wall, sometimes, extraordinary things happen without construction. But I was so impressed with this vintage, I went and purchased more today.
@Deborah M, glad you enjoyed the visit. I’d like to visit one day, too.
