The 2014 Stonestreet Rockfall Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from one of the estate's highest elevation vineyards that sits at over 2000 feet, well above the fogline. Bold aromas of plum, black cherry, and dark chocolate overlay nuanced undercurrents of bramble, mulling spices, and black peppercorn. This powerful wine's classically savory palate also displays hints of blueberry and sweet tobacco leaf, which lie in perfect balance to its generous structure and dense tannin profile.

"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Rockfall Vineyard has a warm black currant cordial and preserved plums-based nose with touches of new leather, spice box, chargrill and dried Provence herbs. Medium to full-bodied, the palate provides generous, mouth-filling black fruit and savory layers, framed by firm tannins and finishing on a fruity note. 969 cases produced." -LPB, 12/29/17

"Black cherry, plum, tobacco, menthol and licorice all open up in the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Rockfall. This is another pretty wine with soft contours and plenty of short to medium term appeal." -AG, Mar/2017
