The "baseline" Stonestreet Cabernet, this is a good Cabernet but, to my taste, a bit pricey for the intensity level. Clean and balanced, with earthy currant, cherry, and coffee flavors. The tannic structure suggests some future development, but overall this struck me as a straight-ahead, ready-now Cabernet that I'd put in the good but not memorable category. - HK 2008-01-01
