Wine Review: This 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon from Stonestreet is showing very well right now. It is an excellent reflection of how the 2006 vintage is coming around right now. It is an opaque and very dark purple colored Cab that opens with a mild black currant bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, smooth, and rich. The flavor profile is a delicious black cherry with notes blueberry and oak with a hint of black currant. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are dusty and stick around for quite some time. This Cab would pair perfectly with a Grill 23 ribeye. Enjoy - Ken

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.
