Stonestreet Estate Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Alexander Valley|
The base appellation 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley shows the more elegant yet also tannic side to the vintage, giving up lots of red and black currant fruits, medium to full body, building, chewy yet ripe tannins, solid mid-palate depth, and outstanding length. This classic Alexander Valley Cabernet is going to benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and keep for 15+.
Composed of 98.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1.5% Petit Verdot, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate was aged for 20 months in French oak barrels, 38% new. Deep garnet-purple colored, it delivers notes of warm cassis, baked plums and warm red currants with nuances of dried herbs, garrigue and pencil lead. Medium to full-bodied, it has a firm, grainy texture supporting the generous black and red fruits with beautiful freshness, finishing long with a lively lift. 5,500 cases were made.
