Wine Details & Tasting Notes

OG N.49 2018 Alexander Valley Cabernet comes to us from an organically-farmed estate vineyard and winery on a steep alluvial fan in the southeast corner of Alexander Valley. Stylistically, I would classify this as fairly right-up-the-middle but with a bias towards elegance and purity of fruit over ripeness and extract. Its exquisitely-balanced and well-structured throughout with sappy, energetic fruit that resounds throughout the lithe finish. Beautiful stuff for sure and, of course given that it sell for well-over $50/bottle at the winery, a stunning value at $16/bottle. The 2017 bottling received 90pts from prominent critical journal and I think the 2018 is a better wine.

Tasting notes from final blend sample: Deep ruby in the glass, she opens up with rich panoply of dark fruits, sage florals and exotic spice. Plum, blueberry and blackberry are well-defined and pure with graphite, sage, black pepper and powdered purple flowers adding complexity. The fruit is energetic and fresh with well integrated tannins caressing the palate in a long, pristine finish featuring a lovely amalgam of blackberry and pepper spice. Delicious!
