"Sourced from one of our highest elevation vineyards, the 2012 Rockfall Cabernet Sauvignon features a vibrant, wildness that aptly expresses its rugged growing site above the fogline. Bold aromas of Santa Rosa plum, black cherry, and dark berry overlay nuanced undercurrents of mountain scrub, bramble, and toasty brown baking spice. Rockfall's classically savory palate also displays hints of blackberry cobbler and sweet tobacco leaf in 2012, which lie in perfect balance to its generous structure and velvety tannin profile." —winemaker
"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Rockfall Vineyard, which sees 57% new French oak for 20 months, is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon with a deep, opaque purple color and notes of charcoal, créme de cassis, graphite and white chocolate. It is full-bodied, multilayered, very deep, impressive and long." —Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

"Graphite, smoke, tobacco, new leather, licorice and gravel are some of the signatures in Stonestreet's 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Rockfall. The most savory and mineral of these Cabernets, the Rockfall is also arguably the wine that captures the greatest amount of site specificity. The firm tannins are nearly buried by the sheer intensity of the fruit, but they are there. In this vintage though, the contours are a bit softened, which does have the benefit of making the wine more accessible early, but at some expense of vineyard nuance. Drinking window: 2017 - 2032." —Antonio Galloni, Vinous
