Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (2010)

A Barterra exclusive, aged an extra 18 months in oak! This award-winning wine boasts superior quality and will continue to gain in complexity. You'll taste the reason why Cabernet Sauvignon is among the most popular California red wines.

Awards:
Silver medalist, 2014 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. A record 5,825 wines were entered from over 1,500 wineries in 25 states.

Wine History:
The grapes were grown in Delmar's vineyard high above the Alexander Valley, at Napa's northern end, where climate and soil are superb for Cabernet Sauvignon vines. This wine was aged in new French oak and second-year American oak, and this reserve spent an additional 18 months in oak. This wine was produced exclusively for Barterra Winery. Production was limited to 250 cases.

Tasting Notes:
A luscious, full-bodied and slightly earthy cab, with hints of fruit, oak and chocolate and a long, smooth, finish. The extra aging adds to the complexity of this well-balanced reserve, which looks, smells, and tastes superb and is bound to impress. The minute you taste it, you'll know why Alexander Valley Cabs are world-renowned. Pairs well with filet mignon, eggplant parmesan, and mushroom dishes. Save some to sip after the meal with chocolate truffles.
