Alexander Valley 2012 No bluffing about it

Description

The All In represents our top lots of Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. These wines are carefully blended together to create a wine in which we are confident to be fully committed to the pot. There’s no bluffing here. The dark cherry of the Merlot melds with the blackberry, cassis and thyme of the Cabernet to produce an intensely aromatic wine. The Petit Verdot adds richness, depth and notes of red berry fruits.

Winemaker's Notes

The 2012 All In Claret is one of my favorites in recent years. The vintage brought about dark aromas and flavors of blackberry and cherry paired with anise and a bit of thyme. The barrel aging softened the tannins and created a plush texture while adding notes of a sweet oak toast and nice hints of vanilla. The wine can be enjoyed now, but will age gracefully over the next 8-10 years.
