Stonestreet 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, Alexander Valley
The Stonestreet Alexander Mountain Estate created by Jess Jackson is an extraordinary winegrowing environment. The Estate stands on the western ridge of the Mayacamas Mountains towering over the Alexander Valley below. High elevations, volcanically derived soils and cooling maritime breezes make it a very unique place. 900 acres are planted to grapes (235 individual vineyard blocks) and grapes for this Cab are a meticulous selection sourced from vineyards all up and down the estate. It's aged 18 months in 37% new French Oak. From the extraordinary 2013 vintage, Antonio Galloni scored this wine 91 points saying "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a gorgeous, entry-level wine for the estate. Dark cherry, plum, mocha, licorice, spice and gravel are all pushed forward. This is an unusually forward wine although there is plenty of the typical savory/graphite notes that are so typical of this site." On Sale!
