Available for:
The 2012 Alexander's Crown exhibits ripe flavors of black cherry, plum and violets. The wine is voluptuous, has a rich mouthfeel, soft tannins and a long lingering finish with a touch of mocha. Enjoy this wine now or cellar it for enjoyment in 8 to 10 years.

A wine that I first recommended highly from the 1974 vintage has reappeared. The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander's Crown is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from this site. There are 1,770 cases of this, which was also bottled unfiltered. Lots of jammy crème de cassis, licorice, charcoal and toasty notes are present in this full-bodied, exuberant, boisterous Cabernet Sauvignon that hits the palate with a thunderous display of glycerin, fruit extract and sweet tannin. This is a big, rich, impressive Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next 15-20 years.

This comes from a vineyard established in 1971-one of the first in the appellation to contribute a single-vineyard bottling of the variety. It features a treasure trove of rich red cherry, leathery tannin and dry mocha on the palate, emboldened by a twist of cedar and dried herb.

Restrained in a structured style, with firm, cedary tannins and dried savory notes. Ends with currant flavors amid the loamy earth and dusty accents. Drink now through 2022. 1,831 cases made.
