This is the wine that started it all! We have been making the Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon since Grey Wolf Cellars started in 1994. This 2017 vintage has bold, dark fruit notes of black plums, black cherries and currants. On the palate there are notes of leather, cigar box, molasses and eucalyptus. The Alpha will age gracefully for 10+ years.
