2005 Alexander Valley Vineyards Cyrus Red Blend

185

2005 Alexander Valley Cyrus Red Blend

Immediately after opening, this red wine felt very tight and enclosed.  It is a dry and full-bodied red wine with solid tannins and nice long finish. After letting it breath for a while, it drank well with flavors of dark cherry, plum, and blackberry  coming through the most.

Rich and darker ruby color. I would highly recommend decanting for more than one hour and pairing this with red meats and others  that can hold up to the intensity of the wine.

Composition:
76% Cabernet Sauvignon
10% Merlot
10% Cabernet Franc
2% Malbec
2% Petit Verdot

2007 Terra Valentine Cabernet Sauvignon Yverdon Vineyard

2007 Terra Valentine Cabernet Sauvignon Yverdon Vineyard

Medium to full bodied cabernet sauvignon from the Spring Mountain district of Napa Valley. Tastes of dark berries with medium acidity. Smooth throughout and somewhat fruity. I expect more fruit to develop over time, which I’ll hope to see when I open my second bottle.

A nice dark purple color with medium legs.
