2000 Alexis Red Blend

$85.00   per 750ml bottle

Our flagship wine, Alexis is a Cabernet Sauvignon-based proprietary blend, assembled from the finest lots grown on our Schmidt Ranch. Beautifully dark red in color, the 2000 vintage is loaded with ripe, deep aromas of black cherry, blueberry and toasty oak. The palate is concentrated and rich with supple tannins and good acid structure.

Wine Profile

Vineyard Notes
This wine was sourced exclusively from our Schmidt Ranch, located along Oakville’s Mayacamas foothills on the west side of the valley. The well-drained alluvial soils produced a small crop of intense, concentrated fruit.

Winemaker Notes
An early budbreak was encouraged by a spring of warm balmy days, which warmed the vineyard soils sooner than anticipated. We then experienced some cooler weather in the beginning of summer, slowing budbreak, which had us all thinking “early harvest.” Two short periods of very hot weather, one in July and the other in August, did result in a slightly early harvest. Rapid sugar development, a warmer-than-average season with an extended “hang time”, all came together to produce a wine of excellent floral and fruit character.
