Traditional winemaking techniques were used for the 2007 Stone Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon in order to focus on the varietal's juicy black fruit flavors. Half the wine was aged in French and American oak barrels for eight months which imparted flavors of brown spice and aromas of vanilla. At blending, Petite Syrah was added to give the wine a rich ruby color, and a firm backbone of tannins. Flavors of cassis, cola and dark fruits fill out this smooth and satisfying wine.
