Swanson 2009 Alexis Cabernet Sauvignon
Top 10 Romantic Wines
This Napa Valley Cabernet is a study in contrasts, well suited to excite the senses of that someone special. At once silky, graceful, musky, finessed, bold, rich, intense, it is a classic Napa Cab yet one with a mind of its own — a sexy vixen's mind. At the start, it exhibits obvious black fruit flavors but as it evolves, earthy espresso, leather and anise spice emerge. Coupled with its sensual texture, the wine's evolution of flavor makes for romance in the bottle.
