Wine Expert Note:

Upon pouring, the Aleksander Reserve greets the senses with a rich, deep hue that promises a serious wine experience. The nose is immediately captivating, with a mélange of dark fruit—blackberry, cassis—complemented by an elegant tapestry of cedar, tobacco, and spice from the integrated oak. On the palate, the wine reveals a superb structure, with layers of dark fruit matched by a symphony of secondary notes including leather, dark chocolate, and a hint of graphite minerality. The tannins are firm yet silky, leading to a long, satisfying finish that leaves a luxurious echo of the nuanced bouquet. This Reserve is not just a wine but an exploration of depth and finesse, promising further revelations with each sip.

Adobe Road Bavarian Lion Vineyard Cabernet Franc comes from a site tucked away in north eastern Sonoma County, near Calistoga in Napa Valley. This area is marked by its warm climate and ancient rocky soils that leads to smaller, more intense berries. Following the alcoholic fermentation, the grapes are pressed off into oak barrels to lift the aromatics, enhance the mouthfeel, and help round out the tannins to create a powerful, age-worthy wine designed to improve in bottle.
