Winemaker Notes & Critical Acclaim:
As a blend of their best Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard sites, the estate bottling is one of the most compelling illustrations of the Stonestreet Mountain. This starts our with savory aromas of blackberry, dark plum, blood orange, Star Anise, and black cherry. As the wine opens, deep fruit flavors of blackberry cobbler, dried cherry, pomegranate, cassis, and milk chocolate begin to show. The palate is rich and inviting with framed tannins, incredible length and plenty of concentration. - Winemaker Note

Moving to the reds, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 19 months in 37% new French oak) offers impressive notes of tobacco leaf, damp earth, cedar, and blackcurrants. It’s look-alike for a top Bordeaux, has nicely integrated acidity, plenty of tannin, and is going to keep for over a decade. - 93 Points Jeb Dunnuck
Made entirely varietal from a vineyard scaling from 400 to 2,400-feetelevation, this red is balanced and elegant in style. Peppercorn, cedar and celery seed accent a mineral driven intensity nuanced in black olive, currant and clove. - 93 Points Wine Enthusiast

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate bursts from the glass with vivacious cassis, black cherry preserves and wild blueberries with hints of chocolate box, dried mint and black loam plus a waft of tapenade. Medium to full-bodied, the palate gives a firm frame of lively freshness and grainy tannins supporting the bright, juicy fruit, finishing long with a minty lift. Elegantly played at just 14.1% alcohol. 12,115 cases were made. - 92 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

About The Producer:

Stonestreet Estate Vineyards is a California wine producer in Sonoma County's sub-appellation Alexander Valley. It is best known for its range of single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay wines. Stonestreet was established in 1989, after Jess Jackson purchased the Zellerbach winery. Jackson was the founder of the major distributor Jackson Family Wines and was half of the namesake for the brand Kendall-Jackson.

The estate vineyards comprise roughly 400 hectares (1000 acres) on a 2000ha property on the slopes of the Mayacamas mountains. Vineyards are planted across the property and range in elevation from 400-2400ft (120-730m) above sea level. The significant difference in elevations, vine-spacing, and various aspects and exposures of the plots mean the estate has an array of mesoclimates. Individual plots demand different farming practices dictated by the specifics of the vineyard site.

Stonestreet offers three collections. The flagship wines are the Single Vineyard collection wines composed mostly of Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. The Estate collection is comprised of varietal wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, each blended from fruit from multiple estate vineyards. Finally, Legacy is a Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant Bordeaux-style blend.

Other white varieties such as Sémillon, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc are sometimes vinified in single plots in smaller quantities and appear under the Single Vineyard collection.
