Lot #64 STONESTREET ESTATE VINEYARDS
- Alexander Valley
ABOUT THE WINE:
“The Pinnacle” represents the truest expression of Stonestreet’s mountain estate vineyards, meticulously hand-selected and crafted. The most patient collectors will truly be rewarded here as the wine was designed to age for minimum of five years in the bottle before release, and will continue to improve over the next 10-20 years. This exclusive barrel auction lot would be regarded as a prize in any established cellar.
Stonestreet Estate Vineyards is the story of a family’s vision to defy the limits of California winegrowing. Jess Stonestreet Jackson and Barbara Banke established the estate in 1995, and their son Christopher Jackson and his wife Ariel continue the legacy. A selection of the best barrels used to craft their Estate Cabernet Sauvignon was chosen by Winemaker Graham Weerts to create “The Pinnacle.”
Graham believes in a vineyard-first approach and brings with him over 20 years of global viticulture and winemaking experience. He is focused on expressing the nuanced characters in each vineyard to bring to the winery and ultimately to the blending table. The wine opens with satisfying aromas of stone fruits, blackberry and baking spices. It continues on the palate with deep fruit flavors of cherry, pomegranate, cassis and cocoa. The palate is rich and inviting with framed tannins, incredible length and plenty of concentration.
