For six generations, the Herzog family produced award winning, quality wines in their native Czechoslovakia. Since moving to the United States in 1948, that tradition has continued under the seventh and eighth generations, with a commitment to excellence undiminished by time.
This Alexander Valley Special Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits black berry, black cherry, and licorice aromas and flavors, which are characteristic of this region’s wines. Aging for 16 months in oak barrels has also contributed layers of mocha and vanilla.
This wine is wonderful with an aged ribeye, lamb roast, or pasta dishes with red sauce. To retain its character only light filtration occurred and therefore sediment may appear as it ages.
