2014 Fortuna Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

On the palate, black fruit flavors of plum, currant and cherry are expertly interwoven with savory notes of dried herbs, coffee bean and graphite. While the fruit is ripe, there is a wonderful tension and counter balance of minerality, acidity and tannin structure to this Alexander Valley Cabernet. A glass on its own would be delicious, yet the wine would shine even brighter with a perfectly seared New York strip steak.
