Stuhlmuller Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
Stuhlmuller Vineyards is nestled in a unique river bench and hillside location on the southwestern edge of the Alexander Valley, where three of Northern Sonoma County's top appellations come together. There, virtually a stone's throw from Chalk Hill and the Russian River Valley, the vineyard's ancient soils and perfect microclimate provide the ideal environment for growing exceptional Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Zinfandel.
"Loads of plum, black currant and cherry notes intermixed with underbrush and earth jump from the glass of the dark ruby/purple-colored 2008 Stuhmuller Vineyards Alexander Valley Cabernet doesn't get the respect it merits, as this wine demonstrates. Blueberry and raspberry notes are also there in this complex, exceptionally supple, round and generous Cabernet Sauvignon. It can be drunk now or cellared up to a decade." Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, 90 Points
"For those looking for a leaner, earthier but still-stylish cabernet, this is the ticket. It's very dry, with soft Alexander Valley tannins and flavors of blackberries, cherries and herbs. This elegant young wine could easily develop fascinating bottle complexities over the next 8-10 years" Wine Enthusiast, 90 points
The 2008 Stuhmuller Vineyards Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a spectacular Cab at a reasonable price--this one won't be around for long!
