Wine Expert Note:

This Alexander Valley Vineyards Alexander School Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a robust and complex red with a deep ruby hue. Aromas of blackberry, currant and dried herbs lead to flavors of ripe plum and cassis that are carried through a long and velvety finish. The tannins are well-integrated, providing a smooth and balanced wine that should be enjoyed now or cellared for another 3-4 years before drinking.
