Alexander Valley 1998 Cyrus
Cyrus is our limited production, handcrafted, proprietary red wine from the Wetzel Family Estate. Displaying rich, concentrated fruit, spicy oak, a velvety mouth feel, and a lasting finish, the 1998 Cyrus is a testament to estate grown Alexander Valley grapes and fine winemaking. This wine displays intense aromas of black cherry, plum, cassis and chocolate. Firm tannins and a long finish balance the full mouth feel. THE WINE NEWS - April/May 2002 91 POINTS "Deep crimson-black hue. Brambly fruit gives way to powerful aromas of black pepper, pine, menthol and oak. Lush, soft fruit flavors of black currant and blackberry accented by chocolate and redwood notes. Long, pleasantly oaked finish."
