Oxnard, CA, Nov. 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- While it may not receive the fanfare of its neighboring Napa Valley, there is no argument that Sonoma has played just as important a role in the development of California wines. It was in 1832 that Spanish Franciscan monks planted the first vineyards in the present day Sonoma County. And from these vines grew what would become the empire of California wines. To this day, Sonoma cabernets are considered some of the finest in the world, providing more complexities and diversity of palate than Napa's fruit forward offerings, "cab drinker's cabs" as they've become known.
While Sonoma has a wonderful collection of smaller AVAs, few are as revered as the Alexander Valley. With a diversity of climate and areas that sit adjacent to the highly touted Russian River and the Chalk Hill, Alexander Valley cabernets are some of the most complex and sophisticated cabs in the world, mirroring the flavor profiles of the legendary Bordeaux wines. And it is from the Alexander Valley that Herzog Wine Cellars produces one of its most sought after and awarded wines.
In just the past two years, the Herzog Special Reserve Alexander Valley Cabernet has won a multitude of awards, including a Double Gold/Best Cab at the San Francisco Intl Wine Competition, and gold medals from the Critics Challenge, Harvest Terroir Challenge, Las Vegas Global Wine Awards, and the Sunset International Wine Competition. With the latest vintage, the 2021, just finding its way into the marketplace, the Alexander Valley is shaping up to have another banner year with one of its best expressions to date.
Herzog's Special Reserve Alexander Valley Cabernet is available at select retailers worldwide and at herzogwine.com.
