Swanson Vineyards 'Alexis' Cabernet Sauvignon Review

Fresh and red-fruited on the nose, this wine shows a lifted, pretty side of Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Like a sunny picnic, a mix of strawberries, cherries, and fresh blackberries waft from the glass alongside green grass, soft petals, and snappy mint. The palate isn’t all soft and light, however; it abounds with structure and integrates more cigar and sweet spice on the palate.
