    Winemaker Notes

    This is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Ink Grade Vineyard. The imprint of Howell Mountain clearly identifies this wine: intense fruit tempered with savory herbal notes, rich tannins, good acid for aging, and many layers of complexity. Fresh raspberries lead in the nose followed by mocha/chocolate, a subtle nuance of pine needles, mint and herb tea, with an undercurrent of vanilla rounding out the aromas. The entry starts big and blooms with a very rich and full mid-palate. The finish is strong cocoa and caramel with a little more "grip" than the Napa Valley bottling.

    Cornerstone Cellars
    In 1991 Michael Dragutsky embarked on a quest to deliver on the potential he saw in a select few of Napa Valley’s finest mountain and benchland Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards. Since that time, Cornerstone's signature winemaking style of firm structure and nuanced texture have attracted an ever-growing number of Cornerstone Cellars admirers while remaining true to Napa’s robust, delicious wine profile on the world wine stage.

    Twenty-six years in, the next generation of Cornerstone Cellars sales and winemaking teams bring to market a diverse portfolio of Cabernet Sauvignon wines –of which each one delivers a focused flavor profile - with realistic pricing to match. Now more than ever, they are resolved to implement a long-term brand development strategy and to constantly renew their commitment to that original winemaking ideology and style.

    With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
