Wine AdvocateOffering a good contrast to the Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley offers has a dense ruby/purple color and complete symmetry in its tannin, acidity, alcohol and wood. It is full-bodied, ripe, with loads of black fruits, a slight earthiness that gives it a different element than the Sonoma cuvée, and seems slightly bigger and richer than the Sonoma, but both are great values in the scheme of world-class Cabernet Sauvignons. This wine should drink well for 20 years. If you haven't noticed the qualitative efforts by winemaker Mark Lyon and the Sebastiani team over the last decade or more, it's time to take notice. Not only are the wines realistically priced, but the quality is very impressive, and some great values can be found. The six wines I tasted while in Sonoma in January include the following. Tel.
