A fantastic new discovery predominately sourced from a site in Oakville surrounded by To Kalon, Opus One and Martha's Vineyard, this wine costs a fraction if what it should!
Cornerstone Cellars 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from four outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard sites, each adding a unique personality. This wine highlights the complexity and diversity of winegrowing in the Napa Valley which is the secret to its silky textures and rich balance. From the vibrant sophistication and refined clarity of South Napa and Yountville which seamlessly blend with the bold, earthy aromatics and tannic structure of Oakville, to the muscular, dense and concentrated fruit of Howell Mountain.
Tasting Notes: "A gentle and harmonious wine exhibiting a fresh, vibrant nose, generously laced with rich red and black berry fruit, subtle barrel spices with a touch of savory dried herbs to add further nuance and complexity. A youthful, energetic, high-toned palate reveals a deep core of layered berry fruits, broadening further to uncover depth and velvety tannins that flow seamlessly, growing in volume as the wine flows to a lingering finish with a vibrantly balanced acidity. Drinking beautifully now with all its elegance and finesse this enthusiastic wine will grow and evolve and become even more delicious."
