Description

Alexander Valley, California 

Vinous 92 points! (on the 2017 vintage)

High above California’s Alexander Valley stand the towering Mayacamas Mountains, home to Stonestreet’s rugged Alexander Mountain Estate. This epic, untamed landscape is both challenging and rewarding when it comes to growing grapes. Here, we are truly a guest of nature, subject to both its bounty and its whims, which serve as a constant reminder that we are merely custodians to this remarkable place. Alexander Mountain Estate stands as the largest and one of the most extensive mountain vineyards in the world. Towering high above the Alexander Valley, Alexander Mountain Estate defies all previous conceptions of winegrowing-235 separate vineyard blocks are aligned in every imaginable spot on the compass, with peaks, valleys and ridges creating a broad spectrum of varied facings and elevations. Yet only a fifth of the 5,100-acre estate is planted to wine grapes. 

Stonestreet Farrier Mountain Blend is an iconic red blend of Bordeaux varietals from our Mountain Estate, coming from vineyards grown above 1,000 feet elevation. Aromas of black plum, blackberry cobbler and fresh tobacco leaf take the lead, followed by flavors of pink peppercorn, dried sage and cocoa powder. A rich aromatic profile is coupled with a savory palate for an integrated and compelling finish. The blend is 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot. Barrel-aged for 20 months in 45% new French oak. Only 534 cases produced.

Enjoy Stonestreet Farrier Mountain Blend with grilled sirloin, roast lamb, and rich vegetarian dishes.
