2018 Phil Long, Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve
The influence of Sonoma’s Alexander Valley is appreciable in this 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon which bursts with unrestrained aromas of plump, ripe blackberries, cherries, and fresh earth. The palate rewards with fully ripened fruit, inviting mocha and sultry vanilla. The smooth tannins allude to further polish over time in this delectable cab.
Established in 2003, Longevity Wines is a certified minority-owned winery based in the Livermore Valley wine region of Northern California. Founders Debra and Phil Long took inspiration from their love of wine and made a label they could call their own. Debra devised the Longevity name as a play on their surname, while expressing their enduring love for each other. Phil personally designed the intricate and delicate heart-shaped logo featuring hearts, grapes, and twining vines. It graces Longevity bottles as a constant reminder of their love. Though Debra lost her battle with pancreatic cancer in 2019, Phil still draws inspiration from her as he continues to foster the brand they established together.
In addition to Longevity, Phil launched the Phil Long Reserve line in 2021 as a tribute to his 20+ years of winemaking in California. These wines are crafted with the finest quality grapes from the illustrious growing regions of Alexander Valley and Napa Valley.
