An appellation of Sonoma County, Alexander Valley flanks the Russian River from Cloverdale to Healdsburg in the northeast part of the county. Sheltered from the influence of the maritime breezes by the low lying hills northeast, it is one of the warmest areas in Sonoma, but the region's close proximately to the Russian River serves a source for early morning fog that covers the lower vineyards areas until it is burned off by the morning sun. The soil is alluvial and the heavily graveled benchlands grow Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Merlot, Sangiovese and Chardonnay.
