About This Wine

Even non-wine lovers have heard of the Napa Valley.

However, they may not be familiar with another hub of quality Cabernet Sauvignon: Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley. Named after an enterprising pioneer named Cyrus Alexander, Alexander Valley was considered a better place to grow wheat and raise cattle before it gained fame for its grapes.

In the 1880s, immigrants formed the Italian Swiss Colony agricultural cooperative at Asti. In the 1950s, that winery was California’s second-most visited tourism destination, right after Disneyland. The 1960s and ’70s established Alexander Valley as a place where top-notch Cabernet Sauvignon could be grown.

Today, some of America’s most loved Cabernets are grown and made there — including fewer than 700 cases of the 2014 Bon Vie “Reserve,” a full-bodied wine that makes a perfect pairing partner for a tender leg of lamb prepared with rosemary and caramelized garlic. It’s a special wine from a special place.

About Cabernet Sauvignon

Deep color and richness with the potential to age a long time, and better still if aged in oak before bottling. Classic flavors blackcurrant, plum, cherry and spice. The most popular varietal of red wine in America.
