Palate Press Wine of the Week – Stonestreet Winery “Christopher’s Vineyard” Cabernet Sauvignon
Rich tobacco leaf and dust pair with blue fruit on the nose. Blue fruits, elderberry and blueberry, lead the attack as well, joined by tobacco on the mid-palate. This has terrific structure, with firm tannins and acids to match. This has great cellar potential, but if you can’t wait, pair it with a well-marbled strip or ribeye. Very Highly Recommended (95-97). DH.
