A big wine, with 14.8% well-hidden alcohol, the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexis (90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot that spent 22 months in French oak) comes from the Swanson family, who founded their estate in 1995, so... A big wine, with 14.8% well-hidden alcohol, the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexis (90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot that spent 22 months in French oak) comes from the Swanson family, who founded their estate in 1995, so this vintage was their 10th anniversary. Attractive, deep ruby/purple, the wine has lots of cassis fruit, but not a great deal of complexity. Nevertheless, it is savory, consumer-friendly, and delicious. It should continue to drink well for another 10-15 years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.
