Stonestreet Estate Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon
Formerly known as Monument Ridge, the Stonestreet Estate Cabernet Sauvignon conveys aromas and flavors of dried blackberry leaves, juniper, cardamom, wild red berries, black pepper, and wet, black slate. The mouthfeel is defined by firm and elegant tannins with a distinct concentration, dark chocolate finish and a sagebrush note so common to the wines from this ridge.

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.
