Description

When a wine has literally every component necessary to be a world-class expression of it’s varietal, it’s difficult to find just one high-point to talk about because there are so many attributes that make it special. Cornerstone Cellars 2014 Calistoga Cabernet Sauvignon is that wine. You could start by mentioning winemaker Kari Auringer who worked under Celia Welch at Cornerstone as well as contributing to the fame of some of the Napa Valley’s most luminous names including Scarecrow, Keever, Kelly Fleming and Corra … to name a few. Or you could talk about winemaker Charles Thomas who has more than 30 years winemaking experience crafting Robert Mondavi Reserve To-Kalon Cabernets, the first twelve vintages of OPUS ONE, or his work at Cardinale, Lokoya, Verité and Rudd. Master-Crafted Wines from these two winemakers with this History of Cult Cabernet Pedigree, are never below $100/bottle… I strongly recommend at least a 6-pack of this wine to taste the master craftsmanship, it’s absolutely gorgeous. Enjoy in good health! Cheers! Salud! Nostrovia! ~ Ed

Yvonne Delgado CaliHiWines Tasting Notes: “This wine is what makes Napa world renown. Cornerstone never seems to let you down no matter what the vintage. Soft, supple and gentle entry of ripe black and red cherries. Fluffy and sultry to the mid palate with a chalky smart and round finish that stains your teeth with its density. Beautiful classic presentation at incredible price without the Napa Premium.” CaliHiWines 96+ POINTS

2014 CORNERSTONE “CALISTOGA” CABERNET SAUVIGNON, NAPA VALLEY

Winery Notes: “Dark, rich and ripe. This wine offers classic Cabernet aromas of blackberry, plum, boysenberry, cassis, mocha and smoky toasted vanilla. Round, rich and creamy on entry, with explosive flavors of ripe fruit that only comes with a near-perfect growing season in the warmer part of the valley. As the wine opens up, the fruit flavors give way to a seductive core, classic cassis, licorice and a hint of leather. The tannins are sturdy but integrated. It is opulent and plush on release but it has the backbone and structure to age beautifully. This wine will reward those with the patience to give it a little more time.”
