Wine Review: This dark ruby wine from Stonestreet was recently recommended by our tasting panel in our recent blind tasting of mid priced Cabs. It opens with an attractive blackberry and black current like bouquet with hints of smoke. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, smooth, shows finesse with its tasty blackberry flavors and notes of strawberry rhubarb. The finish is dry and it has managed tannins that linger. The panel thought this wine would pair nicely with coq au vin. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: "No wine better depicts the extraordinary range of Cabernet Sauvignon expression from Alexander Mountain Estate than this one. Meticulously considered block selection from all elevations is the key: the mid-mountain blocks (700-1,100 ft.) provide floral and spice aromatics, flesh and vivid red fruit while the higher blocks (1,200-2,400 ft.) offer a black mineral streak and the etched structural backbone for which this wine is so well known" - Graham Weerts, Winemaker
