We are proud to release the inaugural vintage of our Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon. As a Sonoma-based winery, we take great pleasure in crafting fruit-driven and approachable wines using Sonoma County fruit.
Selecting top quality fruit from vineyards in Sonoma County's best appellations gives Blackstone its signature fruit-forward style
along with backbone and complexity. 2002 was a fantastic growing season for Sonoma County. The Sonoma Valley vineyards provided bright fruit flavors. Grapes from our Dry Creek Valley and Alexander Valley vineyards provided fullness to the wine while the Sonoma Coast vineyards gave us classic structure and true varietal character.
After the grapes were hand-harvested, Blackstone Winemaker Dennis Hill crushed and cold-soaked the grapes for three days to maximize flavor and color extraction. The grapes were pressed just prior to completing fermentation, emphasizing forward fruit characteristics. The wine was then aged in a mix of French (55%), American (40%) and Hungarian (5%) oak barrels for
15 to 20 months.
The Blackstone Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon shows aromas and flavors of bright, fresh cherry with hints of spice, pepper and violets. This is a big, powerful Cabernet, but the tannins are smooth and round, making it enjoyable now. The wine has a long, flavor-packed finish.
Enjoy this pleasing Cabernet Sauvignon with filet mignon with blue cheese and walnuts, barbecued tri-tip, creamy pasta dishes or cheeses, such as Parmesan Reggiano and smoked gouda.

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...Read More About Sonoma County
(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...Read More About Cabernet Sauvignon
