 Product Description

Voluptuous, celebratory, and exquisitely finessed, our bewitchingly original Cabernet Sauvignon stands tall among Napa Valley's blockbuster Cabernets. Alexis is a wine lover's wonderland: complex, aromatically beguiling and as powerfully elegant now as ten years forward. A consistent Swanson Vineyards classic with a cult-like following, mouth-watering richness, and a friendly price tag which makes buying a case of this rare gem irresistible.

Tasting Notes
Striking in appearance, with its dark ruby, violet-edged color, the 2011 Alexis Cabernet Sauvignon is immediately seductive. Very focused macerated black cherry, graphite, vanilla and forest floor aromas balance each other nicely. Round, opulent, sweet, ripe tannins surface quickly on the palate, where flavors of ripe blackberry and espresso bean are present throughout the lingering finish. This wine will continue to age gracefully for a minimum of 12 – 15 years. Try pairing with tournedos de boeuf, a prime fillet of beef, or your favorite triple-cream cheese.

 

Vineyard Notes
Three very unique vineyard sites provided the Cabernet Sauvignon for this wine: McClatchy, near the summit of Howell Mountain, Beckstoer’s Missouri-Hopper in Oakville, and Sleeping Lady in Yountville. The Merlot was sourced from a small block located at the foot of the Mayacamas range in Oakville.
