Tasting Notes

Robert Parker 92

The dark ruby-colored 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley exhibits a pronounced smoky, espresso bean, and kirsch-scented nose. Round, dense, rich, full-bodied, and open-knit, its low acid flavors are undeniably appealing. Black olives make an appearance in the wine’s aromatics as it sits in the glass. Anticipated maturity: now-2015. Tel. (800) 273-8809; Fax (707) 944-2817 [Robert Parker, 01/01/2000]

Vinous 87-90

Good deep red-ruby. Ripe aromas of cherry, dark chocolate, tar and mint. Less dense than the ’97 but shows the baby fat of the vintage. But doesn’t have quite as much flavor development as the ’97. Finishes with good length and slightly green tannins. [Stephen Tanzer, 01/05/1999]
