Aleksander is remarkable for its rich component of blackberry fruit, hints of tobacco and dark coffee and lengthy finish of earth and spice.
The 2011 Aleksander follows our refined, yet muscular inaugural 2010 vintage with a modest and elegant presentation of the classic Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon marriage. A cooler growing season delivered moderate alcohol content, making this wine a nice partner for pairing with a wide variety of dishes.
