Stonegate Cabernet Sauvignon (2012)
Showing vibrant aromas and flavors of black currants, anise, tar and potpourri, this opaque crimson/ruby wine takes on a tannic, muscular profile. Full-bodied, freshly acidic and with nicely integrated alcohol (listed as 14.5%), it stays solid in the middle and closes with medium length. This is a well-made wine which represents good value.
Stonegate Winery has been around since the 70's making solid Napa cabs and chards. This one is a great drinker and a bargain for Napa fruit.
