Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of blackberry, dark chocolate, and tea leaf abound in the in the first vintage of Flambeaux Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. On the palate, the mountain fruit flavor really shows itself with great mid-palate body, chewy tannins, and beautiful all-spice finish.
Vineyard Profile
Located high in the hills of the Southeastern tip of Alexander Valley sits the Toby Lane Vineyard. Tucked back off of Chalk Hill Road in a pocket of tight valleys, Toby Lane opens up to a rolling hillside where Cabernet Sauvignon is grown for our Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The gravelly clay loam soil profile is fairly thin and wines from this ranch tend to have nice, firm tannins with a darker fruit profile.

Winemaker Notes
We sourced the fruit from the far Eastern portion of Alexander Valley off of Chalk Hill Road in a vineyard set back in the rolling hills. Composed of a blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot, the 2018 Flambeaux Alexander Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a wonderful darker fruit and heavier tannin structure in a wonderful counterpoint to the more classical red-fruit profile of the Flambeaux Dry Creek Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. ~ Winemaker Ryan Prichard
Food Pairing
Cajun butter steak, grilled pork chops with cherry sauce, grilled veggies.
