2016 STONES No. 3

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Stones No. 3 is pure perfection in a glass and could not be any better. This full-bodied, remarkably pure, seamless Napa Cabernet comes from the Oakville Tench Vineyard and reveals a saturated purple color as well as sensational notes of blueberries, currants, camphor, scorched earth, and hints of lavender and violets. Deep, layered, still tight and backward, yet with incredible purity and focus, It’s a monumental beauty. Drink 2023 – 2048.

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Stones No. 3 is very deep purple-black in color with a totally decadent nose of crème de cassis, baked plums and blackberry pie with touches of licorice, chocolate mint, espresso and cloves plus wafts of truffles and smoked meats. Full- bodied, rich, concentrated and framed by wonderfully plush tannins, it has a very long, uplifting finish.  Drink 2024 − 2055.
