[ Home > SALE > Plungerhead Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 ]|
This inky black Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon begins with aromas of blackberry compote, dried Bing cherry, pomegranate, and hints of earthy terroir, all framed with notes of vanilla and lightly-roasted dill from aging in American oak barrels. Flavors of black raspberry and boysenberry, dark chocolate-covered cherries, dried tarragon and toasted coconut are then complemented by a fresh blackberry and toasted brioche finish.
This wine will shine with grilled filet mignon and a classic baked potato with sour cream and chives, as well as intense-flavored cuisine such as lamb kabobs over couscous and roasted parsnips or a simple, savory steakhouse burger pumped up with duck fat fries.
"Acid-grabbing structure in a grapey-plum wash of blue flowers is just the beginning of this quaffable red. Red ribbons of raspberry and pomegranate are brushed with cocoa and coffee from mid-palate to finish. The mineral-rich soil shows through and the ultimate food-pairing ability is greenlighted all the way."

"One of the best deals in the marketplace, the 2014 Plungerhead Cabernet Sauvignon does an excellent job in showing the elegance of the Alexander Valley. The wine exhibits red currants, some chalk, and a touch of savory herbs. Its lively finish makes it a delicious treat with roast chicken."

"This impressive value-driven wine, with small amounts of Petit Verdot and Petite Sirah added, offers a pleasant array of lavender, smoke and chocolate tastes atop a thick texture. Tangy cranberry, raspberry and blackberry give it a juicy, fruity edge thatís decadent yet integrated. Editors' Choice" -Rated 90, Wine Enthusiast
