Location - Cloverdale, California
Wine - Souverain 2006 Alexander Valley Cavbernet Sauvignon
Grape Varieties - Cabernet Sauvignon
Appellation - Alexander Valley
Alcohol - 14.1% v/v
Price -$17 USD
Nose/Aroma - Blackberries, pepper, and mushrooms.
Palate/Flavors - Black currants and plum, backed with a fresh soil characteristic and black pepper. Decently structured and balanced, not a huge wine as such. Med-long finish of dried raspberries.
Style - Lighter than a stereotypical over-extracted California Cabernet Sauvignon.
Comments - Refreshing to see there are still Cabernets available that don't need an oak crutch. Pretty well balanced, nice flavor profile.
