Alexander Valley, Sonoma, California
Vintager Cabernet Sauvignon is a wonderful new wine gem arriving just in time for the holidays! Situated in the Northeastern corner of Sonoma County, the Alexander Valley abuts the Russian River and is protected from the volatile Pacific by the hills of Healdsburg. The alluvial soils here blend harmoniously with the day-to-night extremes of the Valley's climate to create this fleshy, sumptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged in new French oak, this wine asserts ripe, red fruit and a velvety tannic structure; it is at once approachable and elegant. Only 331 cases produced.
The Vintager is all about artisan winemaking. The winemaker's philosophy: "Small-batch or Limited Release wines. With some bottlings as low as 100 cases, it's understandable that these wines are becoming treasured by those in the know. With almost 4,000 wineries in California alone, it is a daunting task to find those 'hidden gems.' That's my passion, and your reward."--''the Vintager''
