Stuhlmuller Vineyards Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

$38

Stuhlmuller Vineyards is located at the southern edge of the Alexander Valley, where it converges with two other highly regarded Sonoma County appellations, Chalk Hill and the Russian River Valley. A great new small-production discovery for us, we highly recommend this Cabernet. 91 Points Wine Spectator: "Firm, concentrated and well-balanced, offering dense, chewy cedary currant, anise, spice and nutmeg notes that are full-bodied and tannic, with touches of herb and spice. Drink now through 2020."

Black fruit dominated, a splash of petit Verdot gives it a slight violet aroma. French oak aging adds great baking spice nodes.

Textbook Alexander Valley Cabernet that is not overdone. Driven by cedar, tobacco and herb along with dark berry fruit. Fairly soft with fine-grained tannins.

Gritty & dry with a nice balance of oak and dark fruit. Slightly overpriced, but absolutely upper middle tier in my mind.

Violet petals on the nose and palate. Pie crust at the back of the mouth with a not overly large finish. Deep dark color yet seems not so big when drinking it. Plenty of body, and as the glass opens brighter strawberry fruit appears. A very pleasant surprise and a delightful wine with lamb chops.
