Cornerstone Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

This tends to be more fruity and jammy, in the California , than our Cornerstone Vineyard bottling, which is more Bordeaux-like. Two vineyards on Howell Mountain, Beatty Ranch and Black Sears Vineyard (at 1800 and 2200 ft. elevation respectively), compose the Cabernet Sauvignon foundation of this wine. A little Malbec and Cab Franc were added for lushness. In the nose there is a core of smoky, blackberry fruit with notes of coffee and old-fashioned horehound candy, and an exotic lily/floral component. The palate displays hillside intensity with blackberry flavors repeating the aroma and bright, fleshy raspberry and cranberry fruit supported by hints of mocha. This is a wine that lingers on the palate, very smooth, with lots of depth and complexity.969 cases were bottled.

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.
