Tasting Notes:
This wine shows how Alexander Valley differs from other Sonoma County growing regions. The nose has hints of strawberry for a full, complex aroma. The palate shows red cherries, layers of flavors and soft tannins. The warmer climate in Alexander Valley gives riper fruit and softer acidity for a richly textured full-throttle Cabernet mouth-feel. This Cabernet finishes silky-smooth and elegantly balanced.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
Hearty dishes like lamb, beef, pork, sausage, grilled meats, stews and game will all pair beautifully with this wine. Dishes with black olives, black pepper, pungent herbs, and mushrooms will also complement nicely. Hard cheeses and salami make a perfect accompaniment as well. For dessert, serve with dark chocolate to highlight the flavors of the wine.
About the Winery
Spann Vineyards Nestled among the majestic coastal redwoods of the Mayacamas Mountains, the steeply terraced mountainside vineyard yields small amounts of richly flavored Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Sangiovese grapes. From this and select cool-climate vineyards throughout Sonoma County, Betsy and Peter Spann craft very limited quantities of European-style blended wines, strongly influenced by their admiration of Bordeaux, the Rhone Valley and Tuscany.
