An extremely elegant Cabernet Sauvignon from a high altitude part of Alexander Valley, in Northern California's Sonoma. From a variety of sites located from 120 metres to as high as 730 metres on the western ridges of the Mayacamas Mountains, which separate the Sonoma and Napa Valleys, this specialist Estate Cabernet is exceptional. A whole spectrum of red and slightly darker fruits inhabit a delicate and silky palate of real finesse and nuanced complexity. So distinctive and beautiful now, this wine will age for a few years if required. Unique!

Its Origins

Part of the Jackson Family portfolio, Stonestreet Estate Vineyards stands as one of the most extensive mountain estates in the world and is a testament to the quality of high-elevation winegrowing in California. Here one finds a collection of distinctive single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons, Chardonnays and Sauvignon Blancs — wines carved from an extreme landscape. Planted high atop Black Mountain, the vineyards are located in the eastern portion of the Alexander Valley AVA. Climbing from 400 to 2,400 feet above sea level, Stonestreet Estate is a patchwork of peaks, valleys and ridges defined by high elevations, volcanic soils and cool maritime breezes. From top to bottom, the property possesses more than 20 soil types and 20 temperature zones. To ensure the utmost quality and authenticity, the estate is divided into 235 separate vineyard blocks and sub-blocks. Each section has its own specific rootstocks, varieties, clones and viticultural protocols matched to the complexities of the terrain. From these divergent terroirs, winemaker Lisa Valtenbergs crafts site-specific single vineyard wines each harvest. Additionally, the Stonestreet portfolio showcases the Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, the Estate Chardonnay and the Estate Sauvignon Blanc — a collection of expressive cuvees emanating from the most highly prized vineyard blocks on the mountain during a given vintage.

What The Critics Say

Winemaker notes on current 2014 vintage

"The 2014 Stonestreet Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a pure reflection of our high-elevation vineyard estate, showcasing the wide variety of facings, soils and flora found on its primary ridge. Vibrant aromas of brambly blackberry, raspberry, tobacco and sage dominate, while underneath one finds subtle undertones of baking spices and anise. The palate offers dark, savory flavors of black currant, dried cherry, dried Herbes de Provence, and a touch of vanilla bean, enveloped in fine tannins that extend the wine through a lengthy cocoa-powder laden finish."
