2017 Captûre Innovant Alexander Valley Bordeaux Blend 750ml
A Bordeaux-style blend, Innovant captures the elegance and distinct character of Sonoma County terroir. Carefully selected lots of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from our Alexander Valley vineyards offer aromas of cassis, nutmeg and black plum. Flavors of savory bay leaf, cedar and cherries with a hint of spice combine effortlessly with ripe tannins and a seamless acidity that leads to a lengthy finish. Enjoy now or cellar for 10+ years.
The 2017 Red Wine Innovant is gorgeous and sleek. Sweet red cherry, spice, mint and mocha give the 2017 striking aromatic presence to match its mid-weight personality. Readers will find a stylish 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine with terrific freshness and plenty of verve.
Checking in as 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Merlot all from the Alden Park Vineyard in the Alexander Valley, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Innovant saw an extended maceration and aging in 40% new French oak. It has a terrific nose of blue and black fruits as well as classic Cabernet tobacco, bay leaf, violets, graphite, and crushed rock-like minerality. I continue to love these wines from Sam Teakle. Across the board, the wines show terrific purity of fruit, plenty of richness and texture, and balanced, elegant profiles.
