User Reviews for Cornerstone Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Winemaker's Notes:

Good Things Come in Small Packages!Through we made our name on Howell Mountain Cabernet, there is a lot of truly worthy fruit outside the appellation. A few years back we decided to make a Napa Valley designation, with similar structure and concentration as the Howell Mountain, but with a different flavor profile. The components in this vintage are from the Erba Vineyard, east of Napa at high elevation, and "the vineyard formerly known as Cornerstone", aka Neal 5. This is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon but in a more fruit-driven : aromas of deep cherry, lots of blackberry, rhubarb, bright cherry syrup, tea and vanilla. A soft, sweet entry leads to very vibrant fruit nestled in texture that is full, rich and round. Even more intense fresh berry flavors linger on the finish. The wine was aged for 22 months in small oak barrels, primarily French and about 80% new. Months in barrel: 22 monthsOak: 80% new barrels, primarily French, medium-plus toast
