Cornerstone Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain Beatty Ranch 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

This is from our own vineyard located at about 1700 feet on Howell Mountain. With the long 1999 growing season, this vintage exhibits characteristics typical of the vineyard which has been the fruit source for the Cornerstone brand since we started in 1991. This wine has a clean, sweet aroma of toasty oak and spice with fruity notes of cranberry, dried cherries and raspberries. Also in the nose are undercurrents of slightly sweet anise, cocoa and chamomile tea. Soft on the entry, the palate shows up-front sweet, juicy red cherries and a little cola-spiciness with nicely resolved tannins.994 cases bottled89 points"The 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Cornerstone Vineyard is interesting and complete, with excellent fruit, depth, and texture. Aromas of cedar wood, spice box, leather, and black currants are offered in a medium-bodied, nicely concentrated, rich, heady . This fine effort has good purity as well as some moderate tannin to shed."--Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, August 2002

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.
