Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
This wine was sourced exclusively from the three best blocks in the Schmidt Ranch Vineyard, located on benchland in Oakville on the western side of the Valley, along the Mayacamas Mountains. The well-drained alluvial soils produced a small crop of very intense, concentrated fruit.
Winemaker Notes
The 2006 Swanson Alexis Cabernet Sauvignon, which was not fined or filtered, in order to maintain maximum flavor intensity and texture, has considerable power and authority on the palate. Color is dense and ruby. Aromas of jammy blackcurrants, ripe plums, vanillin and black cherry. The mouth exhibits very ripe, silky tannins. Finish is thick, yet very well-balanced, with layers of dense, dark fruits and espresso, coupled with just a kiss of oak in the background. Anticipated maturity: 2015.
