2005 Three Stones Cabernet Sauvignon
Three Stones is a beautiful Cabernet blend of mountain & valley floor fruit. After the 2005 harvest we had seven exceptional harvest lots including one from our tiny, re-planted Howell Mountain Eternity Vineyard. We were so excited to see this special Estate Vineyard back in production. But, rather than bottle just 25 cases, we decided to create a special blend from our two Estate vineyards with the addition of some wonderful Merlot & Cab Franc sourced from the Napa Valley floor. The resulting wine is beyond delicious! From vintage to vintage Three Stones will be a unique wine built on the foundation of our Estate Cabernet.
Three Stone's deep purple hues hint at the rich complexity of this beautiful wine, while the wine's savory mixture of ripe plum, melted chocolate and cassis assure it. The '05 Three Stones is as harmonious and balanced as its label stunningly illustrates. The mid palate is chewy while the acidity of the Cabernet Franc contributes a certain lift and lively fruitiness. The long finish echoes the up front fruit while being supported by firm round tannins from the Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now to 2020.
