"The 2012 Stonestreet Estate Cabernet Sauvignon conveys vivid aromas and flavors of black cherry, satsuma plum and blood orange with bay leaf, fresh tobacco and cocoa nib adding further dimension. The palate offers a generous, beautifully extracted texture, all of which is kept in balance by the freshness of the fruit that one finds on the mountain, and an indelible stony signature — wrapped in ripe, chalky tannins that satisfy immediately and yet will easily reward a decade of cellar time." —winemaker

Wine Anthology review:
This Estate Cabernet draws from nearly all of Stonestreet's estate mountain vineyards, with altitudes ranging between 400 and 2,400 feet above sea level. The wide variation gives us a Cab of remarkable richness and many delicious layers, with aromas of plum preserves, cassis, earth, and licorice. The 2012 spent 18 months in oak, allowing everything to marry and leave just a subtle touch of wood in the background. With velvety tannin on the finish, this 2012 is one to drink now or hold for well over a decade.
"As for Stonestreet’s red wines, these were by far the strongest efforts I have ever tasted from this estate. The five 2012 cuvées I tasted are all from amazing elevations. For example, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate comes from vineyards between 500 and 2,400 foot elevations. A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Malbec aged 17 months in 30% new French oak, it exhibits an inky/blue/purple color as well as a terrific nose of wet pebbles, blueberries, blackcurrants, lead pencil shavings and charcoal presented in a full-bodied, rich, concentrated style. There are 5,350 cases of this superb Cabernet Sauvignon, which has 15-20 years of evolution ahead of it." —Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
