I have been a fan of this winery's Pinot Noir, but I have not seen the newest offerings. However, I do have enthusiastic tasting notes on Stonestreet's other red wines. The 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon appears to be even more intense and powerful than the 1993, with an opaque purple color, and gobs of lavishly oaked, smoky, cassis fruit intertwined with aromas of roasted herbs and high quality toasty oak. This powerful Cabernet reveals plenty of tannin, low acidity, and outstanding concentration and purity. This large-scaled, remarkably well-balanced wine should drink well young yet last for two decades. The three vintages of Cabernet Sauvignon from Stonestreet's Estate vineyard in Alexander Valley also reveal progressively more intense personalities. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and aged for 20 months in oak barrels, of which 40%-50% are new, all three wines are exceptional. The wines, which are fined with egg whites, are never filtered.
Well balanced, with supple coffee, herb, currant and cedary oak flavors, it turns smooth and polished on the finish, where the flavors fan out. Drinks well now, but will be best after 1999 to 2000.
