Stepping Stone By Cornerstone "Corralina" Rosé Napa Valley 2012

Member Review by BRUNOHOEPERS:

Made entirely from Syrah picked at 22.5 brix specifically for this rosé. The pretty, light-salmon color fits aromas of just-ripe wild strawberry and mineral with delicate floral and spice notes. Soft on the palate – owing to five months sur lie in neutral French oak – with medium-plus body, mouthwatering wild strawberries and persistent minerality. It will be just right with a light lunch by the pool. 500 cases. To be released in late spring. 89 points

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.
