Tarkettle Road 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander Valley
Here’s a killer Alexander Valley Cab produced by fourth generation California grape growers. This dual role of grower and winemaker is ideal, because the grapes can be farmed in a manner that produces the most expressive style of wine, and, as no capital is invested buying grapes, it means the finished wine brings superior value as is definitely the case for this Tarkettle Road Cab. From the outstanding 2010 vintage, this wine was aged for 14 months in select oak barrels and shows a generous and complex array of flavors. Bright cherry and black currant with hints of herbal cedar and vanilla. Soft, well integrated tannins give it a lush mouthfeel. A super wine and a great value for an Alexander Valley Cab!
