this wine come from the family's vineyard located in Paso Robles, the heart of California's Central Coast wine region. The vineyard is low-yielding, and the wine expresses the region's award-winning, world-class character that derives from its long, warm summer days matched by crisp, cool nights. The rolling acres of the property are lined with rows of southern-exposure vines rooted in a combination of sand and clay loam.

A blend of 76% Merlot and 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, Aleksander is remarkable for its rich component of blackberry fruit, hints of tobacco and dark coffee and lengthy finish of earth and spice.

ANTONIO GALLONI 93 POINTS - "Claude and Katherine Blankiet spared no expense in making the best 2011s possible, and the results bear that out. Readers Read More...
might enjoy this video, which was shot during the 2011 harvest. Among the 2011s, I can't ignore the entry-level Prince of Hearts, which is one of the best Napa Valley wines in its price range. Overall, the 2011s are delicate, perfumed and impeccably balanced. The 2012s are also fabulous - readers may wish to watch videos from the archive of the 2012 harvest and a tasting of the 2012s shortly after bottling. Blankiet fans will note a new wine, the 100% Cabernet Sauvignon Mythicus, which may become a permanent addition. I also had a chance to taste a few 2013s from tank. The transformation that has taken place at Blankiet over the last few years under the direction of Denis and May-Britt Malbec is remarkable.

"The Merlot-based 2011 Rive Droite Paradise Hills Vineyard is one of the silkiest, most polished wines readers will find in this vintage. A sweet, intensely floral, Pinot-inflected bouquet melds into small red berries, flowers, mint, licorice and spices. The style is medium-bodied and supremely graceful, with layers of fruit that flesh out beautifully in the glass. Violets, lavender and rose petals linger on the sublime, layered finish. The 2011 has really come together nicely since I last tasted it this past Spring. The blend is 92% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc."

to start: enjoy a bottle of this wine with friends and plan ways that you too can help inspire your neighborhood to shine! Since this time, the two have produced the Cambridge & Sunset wines to be amazing values, and wines you don't need to be "hip or cerebral" to understand them.

California’s 2012 vintage has been described by winemakers across the state as ideal, having produced generous amounts of high quality fruits. A mild, even summer season and dry, cool fall allowed growers to keep their grapes on the vine longer to ripen sugars, while still keeping an above average acidity. These outstanding growing conditions resulted in many wines embodying their terroir, reminiscent of the best Bordeaux years, with the flavor concentration and fruit characteristics that exemplify California.

This Merlot has an herbal black tea nose with flavors of juicy red currant, macerated plum, tobacco leaf and woody vanilla. Its relaxed finish is savory and sweet with notes of vanilla beans and chocolate cappuccino.

on describing.....It just tastes good!

The 2012 Cherry Picker was crafted from classic wine regions like Sonoma, Napa, Mendocino and the Central Coast, in order to take advantage of the different attributes and characters of those regions. The idea was to create a great tasting wine that I could take out for parties, a red wine that could be opened and enjoyed with pizza, hamburgers, a steak, or simply to knock out a few bottles with friends playing cards without having to analyze or think about what we were drinking.

The wine has balance, with a moderate use of oak, alcohol under 14%, loaded with juicy, ripe red cherry fruit, a round velvety mouthfeel and finishes with lush texture.
