Volker Eisele 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley

A massive 100% Cab from this veteran producer/grower, from the estate in the Chiles Valley District. Hard to exaggerate the lush, New World, cult-style power. High but balanced alcohol, massive new French oak, and a nuclear core of blackberries and currants. Somehow, it all works. A slam-dunk for aging. [+]
