    The Stonestreet Rockfall Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 is a testament to the rugged beauty of its high-elevation vineyard in the Alexander Valley, Sonoma County. Crafted by the talented winemaker Kristina Shideler, this wine encapsulates the essence of its terroir, located amidst the majestic Mayacamas Mountains. With vineyards perched between 2000 and 2200 feet above sea level, this cabernet sauvignon boasts a complex profile shaped by the unique climatic conditions and the meticulous care in its cultivation and production.

    Upon pouring, the wine reveals a deep garnet color, a prelude to its richness. The aroma is a captivating blend of concentrated blackberry, fresh tobacco leaf, graphite, and dark chocolate, with subtle hints of mulling spices weaving through. This bouquet promises a sensory journey, indicative of the wine’s robust character and the wildness of its origin above the fog line.

    The taste is a harmonious balance of power and elegance. The palate is greeted with a classic, savory flavor profile, underscored by the wine’s generous structure and dense, plush tannin profile. Each sip unfolds layers of complexity, offering a long, layered finish that leaves a lasting impression.

    1. Donald Green

      The Rockfall Cabernet Sauvignon is another masterpiece from winemaker Kristina Shideler. The raspberry and cedar notes are wonderfully balanced by a dark chocolate undertone.

    2. Caleb Henry

      The Stonestreet Rockfall Cabernet Sauvignon is a masterpiece from winemaker Kristina Shideler. The harmonious blend of blackberry and vanilla is a delight for the palate.

    3. Joyce Heskett

      The Rockfall Cabernet Sauvignon from Stonestreet Winery is a beautiful explosion of flavor. The dark fruit and cherry notes are perfectly balanced by an earthy, leather undertone.

    4. WE

      The Rockfall Vineyard is between 2,000 and 2,200-feet in elevation, and the wine that originates there is powerful and concentrated in style, with robust red-fruit and mineral tones. Herbal and classic, it shows elegance and integrated oak and tannin within its context of intensity and structure. Enjoy best from 2027–2037.

    5. WA

      Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Rockfall Vineyard was aged for 20 months in French oak, 58% new. Deep garnet-purple colored, it comes prancing out of the glass with gregarious crème de cassis, camphor, wild blueberries and black raspberries notes, plus suggestions of pencil shavings and wild thyme. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is jam-packed with lively, expressive blue and black fruit flavors, framed by ripe, fine-grained tannins, finishing long and layered. 600 cases were made.

    6. JD

      Red and blackcurrants, gravelly earth, tobacco, and assorted spice notes all emerge from the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Rockfall Vineyard, and this rich, powerful 2017 has medium to full body, rich, chewy, substantial tannins, good overall balance, and a great finish. It shows more purity and elegance with time in the glass, yet it’s still going to benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and should have an easy two decades of overall longevity.

    7. Sheldon Romano

      Stonestreet Winery has outdone themselves with the Rockfall Cabernet Sauvignon. The oak flavor is prominent, complemented by the sweet taste of plum and a hint of tobacco.

    8. Johnnie Weston

      The Stonestreet Rockfall Cabernet Sauvignon is a journey to the rockfall vineyard in every sip. The dominant flavors of chocolate and blueberry are a treat to the senses.

    9. Melony Tomes

      Winemaker Kristina Shideler at Stonestreet Winery has produced a gem. The cassis and pepper flavors of the Rockfall Cabernet Sauvignon are bold and captivating.

    10. Lamonica Peters

      Stonestreet Winery’s Rockfall Cabernet Sauvignon is a sensory delight. The black cherry and cocoa flavors are beautifully offset by a surprising hint of mint, making it a truly unique experience.

    11. Gene Ellis

      I’m in love with the Rockfall Cabernet Sauvignon from Stonestreet Winery. The blackcurrant and black fruit flavors are exquisitely layered with a hint of graphite.
