The 101 Best Wineries in America

 

#96 Cornerstone Cellars, Yountville, Calif., and Gaston, Oregon

Michael Dragutsky and Craig Camp of Cornerstone Cellars believe that there is no better place in the world to grow cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, and merlot than the Napa Valley, but that Oregon's Willamette Valley produces better chardonnay and pinot noir than Napa can — so they make wine in both places. (They also produce, among other wines, a Napa Valley syrah rosé called Corallina that has been widely hailed.) Whichever state they're from, Cornerstone’s offerings are forthright and rich — not wines that will sit quietly in the corner.

90 Points for Corallina Syrah Rosé!

 

90 Points

Cornerstone Cellars 2014 Corallina Rosé Syrah Napa Valley

Napa Valley, Napa Valley
Rosé wine from United States
Drinking window: 2016 - 2020 
Vivid pink. Sexy, expansive aromas of ripe red berries, candied flowers and vanilla, with a hint of peppery spices emerging with air. Rich, palate-coating raspberry and cherry flavors give way to exotic apricot and tangerine in the middle, with a spine of juicy acidity adding lift. In an ample yet lively style, finishing with very good thrust and building spiciness. Imagine a ripe, fleshy New World version of Tavel and you can imagine how this wine comes across.

"The 2012 Michael's Cuvée is absolutely delicious"

 

CORNERSTONE CELLARS Cabernet Sauvignon 'Michael's Cuvée' 2012

The 2012 Michael's Cuvée is absolutely delicious, instantly opens with seductive aromas of black cherries and dark currants woven together with sweet spices, violets, graphite and hints of chocolate shavings which soar from the glass. On the palate this is full-bodied, opulent and layered with excellent length, leaving behind delicious flavors of dark fruits, sweet spices and a cocoa edge. Today, this is already showing some very appealing characteristics, however it will need a couple more years of bottle age for everything to settle in. The 2012 Michael’s Cuvée is 91% cabernet sauvignon with 9% merlot. The blend was selected from the Oakville Station Vineyard (To Kalon) 57%, 28% Kairos Vineyard in Oak Knoll and 9% Ink Grade Vineyard on Howell Mountain. Less then 250 cases made. (Best 2018-2025) - July, 2015 (JD)
