Sausal - Cabernet Sauvignon - Alexander Valley - 2003

Posted by Picasa
Sausal Cabernet Sauvignon – Alexander Valley – 2003

Sausal is located right next door to Silver Oak. They have been growing grapes in the Alexander Valley fro the past 52 years but selling the majority to Silver Oak. They now keep a tiny portion of their fruit for the production of their own Cabernet. Leo and Rose Demostene purchased the 125 – acre Sausal Ranch in 1956. They planted prunes, apples and Zinfandel. Later Leo replanted the ranch with more Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon.

This amazing value comes from 100% estate grown grapes. The deep garnet color displays aromas of black currants, clove and lavender. Along the tasting journey, black cherries begin to pop with hints of pepper leading to a long finish.

Recommended Food Pairings:
Leg of Lamb
Veal Parmigiana
Aged Cheddar Cheese
Sauteed Wild Mushrooms
