Mission Briefing

Codename:

The perfect swath

Today’s Stonestreet Wines 2010 Bear Point Alexander Valley Cabernet is offered to you with our boldest recommendation!

Every Stonestreet wine reflects the unique vineyard and climate where the wine was born. Today’s Bear Point Cabernet hails from a steep, elongated mountainside vineyard that spans a stretch that runs just below the fog line from 1200’ elevation down to 1000’.

This Cabernet offers both power and finesse. The result is a very broad range of flavors and aromas.

Fruits present an array that spans from bright red to deep, dark blue and black. On the nose and on the palate, the fruits are complemented by lush earth and floral tones.

This wine is beautifully balanced, presenting dense and powerful flavors - with an elegance that gives the wine a silken texture on the palate. Be sure to decant this beautiful wine for optimal enjoyment.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Absolutely beautiful dark crimson through and through, nearly opaque at its heart. A wonderful lighter ruby edge rims the glass.

Smell:

An elegant wine on the nose, leading with concentrated aromas of reduced blackberry and plum laid overtop notes of fresh California bay leaf, dark chocolate, sweet tobacco, clove, and a hint of eucalyptus.

Taste:

An absolutely gorgeous represenation of a high-elevation Cabernet, with lush dark fruit in perfect balance with earth and spice. Braised black cherry, blackberry, and black currant mingle with flavors of fresh California bay leaf, sandalwood, sage, black peppercorn, and espresso bean.

Finish:

Powerful and robust, but accompanied with just enough finesse, this wine has a fantastic texture and crisp acidity on the finish.

Pairing:

A juniper, mustard, and coriander rubbed pork shoulder, slowly braised with onions and root vegetables.
