Overall, concentration and wonderful flavors of cassis and berries best describes the 2007 CYRUS. Aromas of black cherry, plum, spice, oak, mint and vanilla fill the glass. There is good entry and balance with flavors of berry, cocoa, mint, coffee and cedar. This rich wine has big structure and a long finish. The intense concentration and great balance will allow this wine to age gracefully for 10-15 years. Food Pairing: This big wine calls out for big food - lamb chops with red wine reduction, a dry aged strip steak, pan seared duck breast or a cheese course featuring blue cheese & aged cheddar.

Cyrus Alexander was a 19th century adventurer, rancher, gold miner, community leader and since 1995, the namesake of CYRUS, our benchmark red wine that showcases the Alexander Valley. Our estate winery is located on the original Alexander homestead; to date only two families have owned the property, the Alexanders and Wetzels. CYRUS is our tribute to this special land and the region we call home.

Wine maker notes
After blending, the wine was aged for 12 months in French oak to meld the flavors. Once bottled the wine was aged for an additional 14 months to develop into a seamless blend.
