The Wynns Alexander’s Block was planted with Cabernet Sauvignon in 1988 (hence Alex 88). The terra rossa soil in this vineyard is a deep, light clay which produces even, low cropping Cabernet Sauvignon with great fruit intensity. The 2010 Alex 88 is our second release from this vineyard, planted in 1988 and named after the Alexander family, who owned this block from the early 1900s until 1966. The Alex 88 planting reliably contributes grapes to Wynns’ John
Riddoch or Black Label Cabernets, as it is fitting to acknowledge this quality with an individual label. The release of Wynns Alex 88 Cabernet Sauvignon marks the 10th release of Wynns Single Vineyard wines.
