Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The color is an opaque purple with a bright purple rim. Aromas of blackcurrant, molasses, and blueberry compote are balanced by notes of dried sage and chicory. On the palate, notes of ripe black cherry, dark chocolate, and blackberry come forth. The finish is long, lingering, and pleasantly dry. A complex wine, bold yet balanced.
Vineyard Notes
The 2016 vintage on the farm started warm early and ended beautifully, especially for our later ripening red grapes. The cool fog of the morning frequently cleared to sunny skies early afternoon, accompanied by temperatures soaring into the high 90°s. As the sun set temperatures cooled off dramatically, dropping up to 40°F. These are the ideal conditions for creating greater depth of flavor in our Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot varietals. Our Los Cuatro is a proprietary blend named in honor of Alexander Valley’s Hispanic heritage. Comprised of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, and a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon this wine offers a delicious mélange of savory and sweet flavors in a luxurious package.
