Deep, dark ruby color, with vibrant red currant, fresh herb, crème de cassis, and cedar aromas, this elegant and full bodied wine coats the palate with supple textures, anchored by soft tannins and balanced acidity, with cedar and rich red fruit flavors echoing on the long finish.

Wine AdvocateA famous wine from the early days of The Wine Advocate, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander's Crown Single Vineyard comes from a lower elevation of 250 to 360 feet. The wine displays broad, sweet crème de cassis, black cherry and blueberry fruit, some licorice, graphite, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and outstanding length and purity. This is a beauty, and makes me think back to the great 1974, which was the first one I remember tasting.

Wine EnthusiastCedar, graphite and concentrated plum aromas mark the nose of this full-bodied wine from the southern end of the appellation, where it's cool and breezy from the Pacific Ocean. Entirely varietal, it shows a wealth of red and black berry fruitiness, dotted with dried herb.

Wine SpectatorTightly wound and well-structured, displaying chewy, extracted tannins that give this a mouth-puckering presence reminiscent of a barrel sample. Not shy on intensity or power, this will benefit from a year or two of cellaring. Best from 2019 through 2029. 2,122 cases made.
