Eco Wine Review: Frei Brothers Reserve 2008 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

© Frei Brothers

Frei Brothers Reserve 2008 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is thick with berries and molasses on the nose but the follow through is not your usual California Cab. Cedar and tobacco combined with dark fruit and pepper for a wine that's tasty but a bit tight right out of the bottle. So let this Cab breathe a bit before diving right in.

These grapes are all sustainably grown in accordance with the California Sustainable Winegrowing Alliance (CSWA). For every acre of planted vineyard, Frei Brothers sets aside one acre to be preserved as natural wildlife habitat. And currently 80% of all wastewater is reused; they even capture and reuse rainwater.
