2016 STONES No. 2

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Stones No. 2 offers more mountain fruit characteristics as well as plenty of tannins to go with a beautiful perfume of spring flowers, spice, earthy minerality, and both blue and black fruits. From the Perrarus Block 2 site on Pritchard Hill that spent 20 months in 80% new French oak, give this elegant, layered, full-bodied beauty a good 4-5 years of bottle age and enjoy over the following 2+ decades. Drink 2023-2043.





The 2016 Stones No.2 reveals exuberant notions of crushed blueberries, warm plums, crème de cassis and unsmoked cigars with touches of new leather, yeast extract and cedar chest plus a hint of black olives. Big, concentrated and totally seductive in the mouth, it has a firm, velvety texture, generous fruit, finishing with tons of layers. Drink 2022 − 2049.
