CORNERSTONE CELLARS Cabernet Sauvignon (Black Label) 'Stepping Stone Cuvée' 2011

The 2011 Cornerstone Cabernet Sauvignon ‘Stepping Stone Cuvée’ is a fantastic showing. It offers wonderful aromas of dark cherries and currants followed by herbs, chocolate, brown sugar, spices and toasted coconut notes, which burst from the glass. This is round and polished with lovely plush texture and fantastic balance. The long, supple finish ends with an encore of dark cherries, herbs and toasted notes that linger on. Composed of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon: Ink Grade Vineyard, Beatty Ranch (Howell Mountain) Garvey Family Vineyards “Home Ranch”, Rutherford: 12% Merlot Oakville Station, To Kalon. This is a flat out delicious Napa Valley Cabernet that will be approachable early on, but is sure to evolve in the cellar for those willing to wait. (Best 2014-2024) - April, 2014 (JD)
