Winemaker's Notes:

This Cabernet block is situated between 1,000 and 1,200 feet in a cooler spot below the fogline, hence the bandwidth of flavors leans to electric blue/red fruits—which is unique from the mountain. Floral, dried blueberry and orange peel notes lift out of the glass along with red currant and pomegranate. The texture is seamless and elegant, with fine-grained tannins.
My Notes:

About Stonestreet:

In the autumn of 1989, Jess Jackson acquired the Zellerbach winery and renamed it in honor of his late father, Jess Stonestreet Jackson. Stonestreet quickly garnered international acclaim for their powerful reds and luscious whites.

Today, Stonestreet wines are undergoing a transformation, using fruit from Alexander Mountain Estate and new winemaking techniques. Alexander Mountain Estate, with lean, well-draining soils and cooler temperature, produces fruit with smaller berries and more intense color and flavor. Stonestreet is dedicated to fulfilling the promise of Alexander Valley's exceptional and distinctive vineyards. Traditional, Old World methods of hand harvesting, small barrel lot production, native yeast fermentation and bottling each wine unfiltered brings out the best in specific grape varieties and provides the quality framework for each Stonestreet wine.
