Wine Advocate Review
Rated 90
TThe 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexis (1,572 cases made) offers abundant aromas of creme de cassis, licorice and spice, medium to full body, round tannins, decent acidity and good balance as well as depth. Approachable, it should continue to evolve nicely for a dozen years or more. This is the best set of bottled wines I have seen from Swanson in a number of years. Drink now-2024.

Wine Tasting Notes
In the glass this wine overflows with aromas of blackcurrant, blueberries and plums underlain by more subtle secondary aromas such as cigar box and mahogany. On the palate this wine starts off soft, with black fruits and violets building in intensity as the flavors evolve eventually ending in a crescendo of complex layers and flavors including blueberries, graphite, rich earth and spice. This wine will age beautifully over the next 10 to 15 years.
