A dramatic wine authoritative in tannins bone dry and noble. Withholds its best under a cloak of astringency but already shows its mountain terroir in the complexity of its structure and deep intense blackberry currant... A dramatic wine authoritative in tannins bone dry and noble. Withholds its best under a cloak of astringency but already shows its mountain terroir in the complexity of its structure and deep intense blackberry currant blueberry and dried herb flavors. Should develop bottle complexities for at least a decade and probably longer. S.H.

The biggest production cuvee the inky/purple-tinged 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Monument Ridge is fabulous. Composed of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Cabernet Franc aged 16 months in 76% new French oak casks it reveals abundant aromas of creme de cassis graphite ink licorice and fruitcake in a full-bodied Pauillac-like style with plenty of sweet tannin. These are far and away the most impressive group of Stonestreet Alexander Mountain estate wines I have ever tasted. Kudos to proprietor Jess Jackson and winemakers Graham Weerts and Marcia Monahan for exploiting this high elevation terroir. This has been a work-in-progress for Jackson and he has finally hit paydirt with the following wines. Readers need to pay close attention as there are some amazing Chardonnays as well as red wines emerging from Stonestreet. There are seven distinctive cuvees of Chardonnay ranging in production from 185 cases of Red Point to 660 cases of Lower Rim. All of these super-impressive efforts come from elevations of 900 to 1800 feet. I tasted one Merlot and seven Cabernet Sauvignons and as readers can tell these are also impressive wines. Production ranges from approximately 250 cases of the single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons (the only exception being the 5000-case cuvee of Cabernet Sauvignon Monument Ridge).
