Winestyr Review

This is an unabashedly full throttle Cabernet Sauvignon from Sonoma County's famed Alexander Valley AVA. Full bodied, with backbone of toasted oak, this wine has layer upon layer of red and black fruit with the blackberry jam and creme de cassis as the loudest voices. This is a quintessential, full-bodied, full flavored Alexander Valley Cabernet and is immensely enjoyable.

The Winery

Optima Winery

The story of how the founder of Optima Winery won over his wife is too good of a story not to tell. Mike Duffy had been making amazing Optima wines since 1984, but didn't meet his eventual wife until 2000 when he picked Nicol's son to play for a traveling soccer team that he coached. One night, after getting to know each other, Nicol invited Mike to dinner and pulled out a bottle of Optima Russian River Chardonnay. Mike promptly explained to her that Optima was his winery and he made that wine. After hearing that, she knew she had to marry him, so in 2001 Mike and Nicol got married at a winery in Healdsburg. Now THAT is the power of craft wine!
