The 2012 Stonestreet, Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, Alexander Valley is a great buy for the cellar


The 2012 Stonestreet, Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, Alexander Valley offers both richness and strong focus which will allow this wine to develop for many years.  This Estate bottling was previously known as Monument Ridge in honor of the vineyards from which the fruit was sourced.  These blocks are located at 1,200 – 1,500 feet of elevation on the Mayacamas Mountain range.  Apparently this location yields savory, rich fruit, attractive minerality and graphite, all in one wine that begs to be cellared.  I recommend you stick a few bottle in your cellar to be tasted in 2020.  This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.

2012 Stonestreet, Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, Alexander Valley – $35
This wine is a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot and Malbec that was aged for 17 months in 30% new French oak.  Aromas of scented berries make way to savory and rich flavors of dry black fruit and Big Red. This wine slowly develops over many hours to reveal a mix of cinnamon spices, minerals, and graphite.  ***(*) 2018-2028.
