International Wine Report: “The 2021 No Name Road Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon opens with fresh aromas of blackberries and cherries which are woven together with spices, florals, herbs, and licorice. On the palate this is medium-bodied, soft and velvety, as flavors of ripe red/dark fruits, spices and floral notes lead up to the finish. This is accessible now, and should continue to drink nicely over the course of the next 2-5 years.”

James Suckling: “Aromas of mulberries and dark cherries, blood orange, licorice and cocoa. Medium-to full-bodied with a sleek, chocolatey texture. Fine tannins and juicy finish. Drink now.”

Wine Enthusiast: “Rich in fruit and equally rich in oak spices, this lavishly perfumed wine boasts cinnamon, vanilla, cocoa, and mint nuances over good black cherry and blackberry flavors. A full body and moderate tannins give it a mouthfilling texture.”
