A powerful and refined wine that will age beautifully for the next decade. 92% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot and 3 % Malbec
Lovely aromas of purple flowers (exotic purple iris on the estate) mingle with raspberry, blackberry, and hints of tobacco and spice. More blue and blackberry flavors emerge on the palate with touches of cocoa, dried ancho, vanilla, and sandalwood.
Substantial and silky tannins through the mid-palate build with each subsequent taste while still maintaining finesse. Beautiful dark chocolate and sweet licorice finish. Seamless transition from the first moment the wine hits your lips through the finish and beyond. Drink now with decanting, yet age-worthy for sure!
Double the pleasure with Magnums! Perfect for sharing with friends and family nothing is better than large format in the center of your table.

2008 is all about quality and concentration of flavors. Mother Nature made sure the weather was at both ends of extremes throughout the growing season. In the end, she made it all good… The winter was tracking to be one of the wettest on record but then as spring came around, no rain – nada – dry as a bone. The cool and consistent summer climate put the final and most perfect touches on the grapes.
The Stone Place Cabernet offers a smooth and seamless transition from the first sip to the lingering finish. With layers of vanilla, rosemary, and blackberry pie, the complexity and tannins of this wine qualify cellar aging although currently approachable and inviting.
