Hanna 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander Valley
Item Number: 13 20 174 09
This delicious Cabernet comes from Hanna’s estate vineyard, the Red Ranch in Alexander Valley. About 50 acres of Cabernet and about 25 acres of Merlot grow there on gravelly red loam soils. The grapes were sorted, destemmed and the partially crushed and cold soaked for up to 13 days. After fermentation the finished wine is aged in French oak barrels from Taransaud, Seguin Moreau, Saury and Canton. This 2009 is 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and about 1% each of Merlot and Malbec and the flavors and aromas are lush, floral and full with blackberry, violet, scorched earth, and cedar nuances. Tannins are supple and chewy and this wine drinks beautifully right now, right out of the bottle. Grab it while it's On Sale!
