Wine Review: This opaque and dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Stonestreet opens with a mild black cherry bouquet with a hint of cedar and bell pepper. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a pleasant black currant with notes of minerality. We also detected hints of black licorice, coffee and oak. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins stick around for quite a while. The panel suggested pairing this very nice Cab with homemade meatloaf. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2013 Stonestreet Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a pure reflection of our high-elevation vineyard estate, showcasing the wide variety of facings, soils and flora found on its primary ridge. Vibrant aromas of brambly blackberry, black currant, smoky tobacco leaf, and sage dominate, while underneath one finds subtle undertones of white peppercorn and dried cranberry. The palate offers dark, savory flavors of plum compote, black cherry, dried Herbs de Provence, and a touch of vanilla bean, enveloped in fine tannins that extend the wine through a lengthy cocoa-powder laden finish.
