2015 Alexander Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

- 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
- Aged in neutral French oak for over 2 years then in the bottle for over a year prior to release
This Cab hails from “aCURE eSTATE” Vineyard, located in the hills at the western end of Alexander Valley, an area that enjoys long, sunny days and cool nights, ideal for properly ripening of Cabernet Sauvignon. De Novo’s two-acre block provides fully mature, densely concentrated fruit. The vineyard and winery are powered by large pivoting solar photovoltaic panels, making the vineyard operations approximately 50% carbon-neutral, proudly following sustainable agricultural methods.
With a deep purple color and gem like clarity, this wine is a concentrated, classic Cabernet Sauvignon. The nose offers up hints of oak, cloves, vanilla and dried cranberries. The palate continues with multiple layers of dark forest berries and finishes off with lingering plum. This is a balanced wine with a strong backbone and moderately soft, aged tannins, that can be enjoyed from 2020 to 2032.
