Alexander Valley Vineyards Cyrus Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2011

Ratings on Delectable

Ryan Vento

Eager to see how this develops in the glass. Currently drinking a little subdued, but still exhibits notes of plum, spiced fig, clove, wet leather, and anise. . Edit - After a good 1.5 hour decant this selection gained some much-needed vibrance with more fresh red fruits & garden herbs, as well as some added layers of inorganic notes like granite, mild asphalt, and graphite. Graduated from a 90 to a 91.

Alexander Valley Vineyards is owned and operated by the Harry Wetzel family. Founded in 1975, it is located on Cyrus Alexander's old homestead. A blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot, 6% Malbec and 4% Petit Verdot with aromas of berry fruits and toasty spice aromas. On the palate cherry and blackberry flavors with vanilla, oak and cacao. Structured tannins, well balanced on lingering finish ending with sweet spicy tones.

Our vertical tasting of Cyrus begins! 2005-2011. I can't remember much now, but I know they were all amazing!
