Stone The Crows Cabernet Sauvignon 2011


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

One of the most aromatic wines I make, the 2011 Stone the Crows is very reminiscent of the 2010 version that we all loved so much. As I write this note, the room is filled with hints of blackberry, lifted red fruit and crushed rock. The entry of the wine has a generous amount of upfront red and blue fruit, rounded and virtually seamless. That initial generosity is quickly surrounded by very fine, but prominent tannin that gives the wine wonderful texture at this early stage. The best days for this wine are still a few years ahead of it, however a generous amount of airtime will allow for drinking pleasure at any point during its development.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is rich, vinous and very appealing. Violets, plums and savory herbs all appear in this pretty, mid-weight wine. Today the 2011 is a bit raw and unpolished, but it has great energy, tension and finesse. Stylistically, it is quite different from the 2011, but equally delicious.
