Stonestreet Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Stonestreet Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Sku: 041093

Tasting notes
Big, bold Cabernet Sauvignon displaying richvarietal characteristics of dark berry and cassis with hints of spice and chocolate on the nose

92 points. "Just what you would expect from a long, cool vintage and hillside vineyards - a tightly wrapped, dense wine that need some time in the cellar to unfurl its flavors of chocolate, cassis and lead pencil. Has a richly textured mouthfeel and, despite some drying tannins, finishes with enough fruit to more than compensate." Wine Enthusiast, September 2003

 Wine Advocate 91 points (Dec 2008)
Although the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon is a softer wine, it still begs for additional bottle age. A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, it offers graphite, blackberry, cassis, toasty oak, and earth notes in a full-bodied, rich style with slightly less tannin and concentration than its monster sibling.
