Description/ Tasting NotesMedium to full-bodied wine with aromas of ripe apple, peach blossom, poached pears and nutmeg-scented nose with a waft of beeswax. Savoury with plenty of citrus and mineral accents and long spicy finish.
Winery Info/ Brand
Stonestreet Estate Vineyards stands as one of the most extensive mountain estates in the world and is a testament to the quality of high-elevation winegrowing in California. Here one finds a collection of distinctive single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons, Chardonnays and Sauvignon Blancs — wines carved from an extreme landscape.
Region Info/ Origin
Alexander Valley AVA sits at the top of Sonoma County with about 15,000 acres of much prized vineyards. Within the 76,000 total acres of this AVA, there are a variety of microclimates supporting a substantial range of grape varieties. Just enough coastal fog finds its way up the Russian River Valley to create cool evening and morning conditions. This, however, gives way to hot mid-day temperatures in what is overall a relatively warm growing area. Originally, the AVA was designated for the alluvial floodplain vineyards on both banks of the Russian River, but those boundaries have since been expanded to include mountainside vineyards.
