Alder Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon

2013 Alder Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon Tasting Note

This dark ruby wine opens with expressive and intense aromas of blackberry, Bing cherry, plums and currants with nuances of cocoa, truffles, baking spices, sage and white pepper. The soft tannins and balanced acidity are integrated with the rich, viscous mouthfeel. Round and generous with great flavor intensity and a long, lingering, spicy finish.
