Stonestreet Estate Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Alexander Valley, Sonoma County, California, United StatesWinemaker Lisa Valtenbergs is the stylist of this impressive young cabernet. The fruit is hand-picked, cold soaked for 3-5 days and fermented in tank before an 18-month stay in only 32 percent new French oak. The result is pure Alexander Mountain black fruit and blackcurrant mixed with savoury, dried herbs on the nose, surprisingly bright acidity, and rich black cherry and black plums. The tannins are richer and softer in 2014 but it will still age effortlessly for a decade. The 5,100-acre site has 900 acres planted to grapes in 235 individual vineyard blocks.Tasted: 02 March 2018Tasted by: Prices:
