I had the limited edition version produced for Sandals Resorts, 2008 vintage. I used it as a base to make Sangria, which is what the resort did as well. The resort used Ugle fruit and fig; it was so wonderful I brought a bottle home to try and make my own. I used blackberries, pineapple, and sugar. I love red wines that are on the sweeter side (not super dry or minerally) and this wine was wonderful. I dont usually find myself to be a Cabernet drinker, and this wine is one of my favorites. By itself, it is a very well balanced wine, very smooth, very sweet, VERY tasty!
Simple, flavor of cassis
if you brake down this wine there is something wrong with you palate ;als a Belgian customer we drink the best french wines and this one is a perfect drinkable sauvignon not the top but now they sell them out at wallgreens for 3,79 unbelievable ! i think they are going to pull the prices way up so ppl will think it is heaven and then you pay for what you get !' bummer
External Reviews for Stone Cellers Cabernet Sauvignon
Cabernet Sauvignon lush black fruit and intense cassis flavors that compliment the baking spice and vanilla aromas. Structured tannins and a long finish.
Round, with good depth to currant, dried raspberry and fresh herb flavors that firm up on the tannic finish. Good Cab for the money. Drink now through 2005.
The deep ruby color of this wine is the first hint of layers of currant, blueberry, clove and tobacco that unfold in the mouth. Barrel aging enhances a supporting structure that makes this wine a perfect dinner match with thyme-encrusted roasted pork chops or hamburgers in bleu-cheese and mushrooms.
