Cornerstone Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Also available in 375 ml! Our first ever offering from various vineyards throughout the Napa Valley shows the power of blending from some of the valley's finest growing regions. This powerful, fruit-forward 100% Cabernet Sauvignon combines great fruit from the Sweetwater Ranch north of Napa, Neal Family Vineyards on Howell Mountain, and the J.J. Cohn Estate in Rutherford. Each vineyard on its own makes beautifully balanced, intense wines and the combination of them is amazing. Winemaker's Tasting Notes: Intense aromas of fresh plums, accented with spices and cedar. Plenty of red raspberry and subtly woodsy perfume in the background of the aromas. The wine is beautifullly balanced, with nicely resolved tannins giving the wine a sweet, silky, fruit-driven finish. The wine was bottled 9/2/04. A total of 1150 cases were produced.

Cornerstone is celebrating our 17th vintage making only concentrated, collectible Napa Valley red wines. We are pleased to offer two extraordinary bottlings of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon: Howell Mountain and Napa Valley. Cornerstone Cellars is dedicated to crafting exceptional Napa Valley wines and our true cornerstone is our wine. By choosing to make our wines in a collective facility we are helping make a smaller carbon footprint in the Napa Valley. We believe this collective model is the future of small, environmentally aware estates. We have focused all our efforts, attention and investments in a quest to produce wines that challenge the very best in the world. We take pride in creating distinctive, character-filled wines that equal and often exceed the quality of the most sought after and collectible wines in the world. We invite and relish comparisons of our wines with bottles that often cost hundreds of dollars more. Our quest has been to find the finest Napa Valley vineyard sources for our fruit and one of the world's finest winemakers, Celia Masyczek. At no time are any shortcuts taken in trying to achieve our ultimate goal, exciting and profound Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Utilizing Celia's almost three decades of Napa Valley experience, the wines of Cornerstone are crafted from a range of superlative vineyard sites. In our two wines, Howell Mountain and our Napa Valley Cabernet, we have given her the opportunity to work with the full palette of Napa vineyards to create wines that are uniquely Cornerstone.
