Wine Advocate 90 points - Offering a good contrast to the Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley offers has a dense ruby/purple color and complete symmetry in its tannin, acidity, alcohol and wood. It is full-bodied, ripe, with loads of black fruits, a slight earthiness that gives it a different element than the Sonoma cuvee, and seems slightly bigger and richer than the Sonoma, but both are great values in the scheme of world-class Cabernet Sauvignons. This wine should drink well for 20 years.
An amazing value, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma exhibits beautiful winemaking as well. Offering blackcurrant fruit, some cedar wood, spice box, supple tannins, medium to full body and a dense ruby/purple color, this is another beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon, not quite as compelling as the Old Vine or Gravel Bed, but a full-bodied, mouth-filling, terrific example of Cabernet Sauvignon from Sonoma.
