Dense and chewy now at three years of age, this wine shows incredible decadence and a seamless texture. Mocha, tar and anise all brilliantly combine, as the wine is obviously quite big, yet displays a good sense of elegance. Enjoy this beautiful wine over the next decade.

Rated 93 by Jeb Dunnuck
The 2018 Stone Cairn checks in as 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Merlot that was brought up in 50% new French oak. This deep ruby/purple-hued beauty gives up a great bouquet of crème de cassis, spicy oak, chocolate, and flowers. Beautifully balanced and medium to full-bodied, with both richness and elegance, it ranks with the finest examples of this cuvée I've tasted. If it was from Napa, it would be three times the cost. Drink bottles over the coming 10-12 years, if not longer.

Blackberries, raspberries, cloves, walnuts and mixed peppercorns on the nose. It’s full-bodied with firm, fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity. Succulent and polished. Chocolatey notes on the finish. Delicious already, but better from 2022.

Winemaker Andrew Januik is one of a handful of second generation winemakers in Washington. Aromas of espresso, blackberry and black cherry lead to a palate that brings a lot of freshness and structure.

Rated 90 by Wine Advocate
Dark ruby at its core, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Stone Cairn starts with a firm, concentrated nose with hints of sage and thyme with an undercurrent of dusty vanilla, resinous purple flowers and spiced black plum. Full-bodied, the palate is dense with rich, dark fruit flavors of crème de cassis, blackberry jus and redcurrants before firm, gripping tannins build across the mid-palate. With a long-lingering and dusty finish, the Cabernet will better be paired with food. The wine aged 21 months in 50% new French oak. Just over 7,400 bottles were filled.

Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

From the valleys of California and Chile to the rolling hillsides of the Bordeaux region of France, the one red wine grape varietal you will find in abundance is the Cabernet Sauvignon. This darkly colored grape has been cultivated since the mid 18th century, when it was borne from a cross of fine Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc varietals. Since then, it has spread around the world and has been received with pleasure by wineries looking for a varietal which delivers excellence of flavor and aroma, whilst being hardy enough to resist frost and rot and other such difficulties. Indeed, Cabernet Sauvignon is probably the most recognizable red wine grape varietal on earth, and is easily distinguished by its high tannin level and acidic nature, which is often so beautifully mellowed by being blended with Merlot and other such grapes.

Region: Washington State

Washington state is a fascinating region when it comes to American wine production, with the majority of their produce coming out of the desert-like eastern half of the state. This expansive region has a unique climate produced by the rain shadow of the Cascade mountain range, and here we find over ninety-nine percent of the state's vineyards which hold a wide range of classic grape varietals including Merlot, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and others. Today, there are over forty thousand acres in Washington under vine, and the industry of the state is going from strength to strength due to the increasing popularity of the wines which are produced here. Over six hundred wineries in the state take advantage of the well irrigated vineyards which flourish there, and these numbers are expected to grow quickly over the next decade.

Country: United States

For three hundred years now, the United States has been leading the New World in wine production, both in regards to quantity and quality. Wine is actually produced in all fifty states across the country, with California leading the way by an enormous margin. Indeed, as much as eighty-nine percent of all wines to come out of the United States are produced in California, where the fertile soils and sloping mountain sides, coupled with the long, hot summers provide ideal conditions for producing high quality, European style red, white and rosé wines. With over a million acres of the country under vine, the United States sits comfortably as the fourth largest wine producer in the world, where imported grape varietals from all over the Old World are processed using a successful blend of traditional and contemporary techniques.
