2005 Alexander Valley Vineyards Cyrus Red Blend
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.
76% Cabernet Sauvignon
10% Cabernet Franc
2% Petit Verdot
