    I've been enamored with California red wines made from fruit grown in the Mayacamas Range since we took a staff trip over to the region back in 2012 (right around the time these grapes were on the vine). The wines from Napa and Alexander Valley made from higher elevation mountain fruit simply have more depth, concentration of fruit, and a better capability of going the distance due to their superior structure. The 2012 Stonestreet Estate Cab is a perfect example of Mayacamas Range fruit grown in a ripe vintage. It's a mouthful of dark, inky, opulent fruit that has subtle tannic grip. The guts are there for the cellar. They're just dwarfed by the richness of the fruit. You could pop this now, and I'd be tempted to, but I'd rather let the new oak integrate for a year or two at least before opening these up. Either way you're getting a great wine from a vintage that keeps on giving.

    Savory and sumptuous! From the start, the nose is full of quite lovely cherry, raspberry, and mocha notes. On the palate it’s got a lovely velvet texture. Fine tannins come across nicely and blend very well with the fruit. The finish is medium to long and is a beautiful, savory number. Delicious!!

    Here's a great value in Cabernet that really shines. It shows a wonderful concentration of dark fruits without going over the top, highlighted with a dash of dark spices and nicely supported by rounded tannins. It will hold its own with a lot of cabs at twice the price!

    One of the wineries to be on the lookout as an up-and-coming producer is Stonestreet, this is an amazing project focusing on small, vineyard driven plots dotting the Alexander Valley and more specifically the Mayacamas Mountain Range which produce extraordinary fruit. The result is numerous single-vineyard offerings including this spectacular 2012 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon which is sourced from multiple estates vineyards. The 2012 Stonestreet “Estate” Cabernet Sauvignon starts off with intense aromas of crème de cassis and mocha with flavors of bright blackberry and black cherry fruit on the palate. Smooth, rich and harmonious on the finish this wine represents an insane value and totally over-delivers on its $34.99 price.
    Top Value! Drink from 2015 to 2025
