International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 102

Ruby-red, with a hint of development at the rim. Classic California cabernet aromas of blackcurrant, tar and menthol. Began slightly lean and herbaceous but seemed to put on weight and gain in texture as it opened in the glass. Firm acids are a bit tart but not quite spiky. Finishes firmly tannic, with a faint greenness and a note of coconutty sweet oak.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 132

The 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley is a dense purple color with boisterous, sweet, spicy, new oak, licorice, and olive notes. This flamboyant wine tastes lighter than I would have expected for a 1997. In the mouth, it reveals medium body, sweet jammy cherry fruit, and a soft finish. It needs to be drunk over the next 7-8 years. By the way, the Alexander Valley cuvees are always 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

A bit chalky at first, it turns to herb, currant and coffee flavors that are rich and elegant, finishing with dill and sage notes and chewy tannins. 47,000 cases made.

The aroma was cough syrup and the wine needed more time to breath. Drank after 1 hour of decanting but had an old world earthy leather. The wine just didnt have the fruit that we love in SO...Just out of balance..We will let breath 2 plus hours next time..
