1997 Alexander Valley Vineyards "Wetzel Family Estate" Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (750ml)15 1 0 0
Every once in a while, you open a bottle at the right time. Timing can be everything...and this was one of those times. A huge wine, classic cabernet structure, w/cedar, leather and some tobacco. Smooth tannins, but not refined, in a high end way, a little rough around the edges. Delicious, I kind of wish I had brought this to a blind cabernet tasting, and pulled the wool over a lot of folks eyes. I'm thinking this verifies the great qualities of the '97 cabs.
