Stonestreet Cabernet Sauvignon Rockfall Vineyard 2012

Alexander Valley, Sonoma County, California, United StatesSourced from one of Stonestreet’s highest vineyards, this cabernet sauvignon has a mountain wildness about it, expressing its extreme, warm (at least by day) situation above the fog line. The wine spends 20 full months in French oak but only 57 percent is new, leaving the plummy, firm black cherry and scrubby savory dried herbs a chance to express themselves on the palate. The finish is long and streaked with baking spices and more black fruit. It’s a pleasure to taste a California cabernet that is showing signs of terroir and site specificity.Tasted: 08 March 2017Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 75.00 estimated retail Producer: Stonestreet Winery
