On Thursday, August 27th at 5:00pm, Wally’s President, Christian Navarro, will be catching up with brothers Sasha Vujacic and Al Bjekovic from Aleksander Estate for a virtual tasting on Wally’s Instagram Live! Aleksander Estate is the newest Paso Robles star. The winery is rooted on a belief that a family’s bond is the strongest bond of all. Originally from Slovenia, Sasha Vujacic and his family found the perfect piece of land for their family winery in California. With soil like Bordeaux and sunshine like Napa, they found S&G Estate in Paso Robles. Aleksander Estate’s wines are far more than a world-class Bordeaux blends- they are the result of a family’s promise to make something truly spectacular. These wines are not-to-be missed. The tasting will feature the finest expressions from the winery.
Place your order today and taste along with Christian, Sasha, and Al!

2010 Aleksander Red
Wally's Price: $210
Inky ruby. Deeply pitched aromas of ripe cherry and plum are lifted by a peppery element and a subtle floral note. Fleshy and broad in the mouth, offering hefty dark fruit preserve flavors and a touch of candied licorice. In an ample, decadent style, finishing with a strong thrust and velvety framing tannins.

2012 Aleksander Red
Wally's Price: $70
There is plenty of bottle age on this release, but it’s quite delicious now. Aromas of caramelized blackberry and liquified oak lead into a palate full of cedar, cassis and a hint of black olive.

2013 Aleksander Red Reserve
Wally's Price: $115
2013 Aleksander Reserve black label performs brilliantly with a silky presence on the palate and a grace and style rarely found in bold red wines from Paso Robles. The nose offers a sweet hint of jasmine while the flavors that dance around the palate include baked dark fruit, enticing herbs and oak barrel spices. - Winemaker Notes
ABOUT ALEKSANDER WINE:
Aleksander, a boutique wine by two-time NBA Champion Sasha Vujacic and family, is the outcome of an absolute commitment to excellence. Located in California’s prosperous wine region of Paso Robles, S&G Estate is a 30-acre property, home to estate-grown grapes and on site winery. Aleksander is a red wine blend reminiscent of the great wines of Bordeaux. Centered around Merlot, it has varying degrees of contribution from other classic Bordeaux grapes, depending on the vintage.
Contributing to the complexity of our wines are French, Serbian and Eastern European oak barrels in which our White Label wines are aged a minimum of 18 months and our Reserves a minimum of 24 months. After bottling, the wine is aged in bottles for a minimum of 10 months prior to release. Both labels are full bodied and aromatic, perfectly balanced with rich, dark fruit and a silky tannin texture. Our family’s commitment to excellence and quality is the foundation for all of our endeavors. We are thrilled to introduce you to our award winning wines.
