Stonestreet Cabernet 2006
No wine better depicts the extraordinary range of Cabernet Sauvignon expression from Alexander Mountain Estate than this one. Meticulously considered block selection from all elevations is the key: the mid-mountain blocks (700-1,100 ft.) provide floral and spice aromatics, flesh and vivid red fruit while the higher blocks (1,200-2,400 ft.) offer a black mineral streak and the etched structural backbone for which this wine is so well known.
External Reviews for Stonestreet Cabernet
Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. Intense, deeply scented with lots of rich oak and woodsy spice piled atop its ample compliment of dark fruit, this potent and sturdy young Cabernet walks a fine line between being rich and slightly austere. It is bound up in stern tannins, and it tends to gritty, back-palate astringency just now, but it hangs on to a fair measure of nicely concentrated cassis-like fruit at the finish and promises better with age. This is a keeper very much meant for the long haul, and it may not show its true colors until upwards of a decade has passed.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Cellar for future drinking. Wine will improve with bottle aging.
