Cornerstone Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Stepping Stone Mill Race Vineyard 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

These 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are sustainably grown on the "race" or stream that once powered the old Yount Mill, near Yountville. Aromas are very plumy on the nose with a backbeat of cherry fruit, accented by cocoa, cinnamon and baking spice with notes of sweet hay and cedar finishing the aromatic parade. It is very silken on the palate with plum and cherry flavors reinforcing the aromas, and a fruit-saturated finish. Grilled meats make this wine very fruity and juicy; also ideal with cheeses. 747 cases produced

Cornerstone Cellars:
vineyard, vintage, & variety OUR THIRD DECADE OF EXCELLENCE EXCELLENCE IS NOT ENOUGH. We have to go beyond and establish an ever higher goal each vintage. Our mission is to craft wines that are not only exceptional, but memorable. Each of our wines expresses the essence of vineyard, variety and vintage, which combine each harvest to create something never to be exactly repeated.
