This Alexander Valley Special Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits berry, cherry, and licorice aromas and flavors, which are characteristic of this region's wines. Aging for 18 months in oak barrels has also contributed layers of mocha and vanilla. This wine is wonderful with roasted turkey, barbecued meats, or pasta dishes. To retain its character only light filtration occurred and therefore sediment may appear as it ages.
Enjoy with an aged ribeye, lamb roast, or pasta dish with red sauce
Complex and nuanced flavors, with warm currant, wild berries and plum, mixed with spice and cedar. Long luxurious finish.

- Consistently a winner for Herzog and likely the best vintage since 2004. Iâ€™ve tasted this several times over the past year and itâ€™s just coming around right now. This wine has a wonderful nose steeped in a blend of crushed blackberry and black cherry with nuances of plum and, in true Herzog style, plenty of vanilla and oak. On the attack, a mouthful of black and red fruit (ever so slightly sweet) that gently slides into mocha and spice on a background of toast. Not quite full-bodied but weighty enough on the palate for consideration. Silky tannins and concentration create a soft, round mouthfeel masking the wineâ€™s braun in a veil of elegance. The long finish is rich with spice and zest that ends with a sumptuous note of licorice. Well-balanced with a solid structure, this wine will only improve with age and can be enjoyed for the next 8-10 years. Cheers!
