Additional Wine Information

Story
Napa Valley’s 2007 Cabernet Sauvignons are just starting to reveal their charms, as exemplified by this flagship bottling from Cornerstone Cellars. Founded by two Memphis doctors, Michael Dragutsky and David Sloas, Cornerstone focuses on boutique Bordeaux varietal wines from Napa Valley vineyards. Under the stewardship of New Zealand–born winemaker Jeff Keene, Cornerstone produces several Bordeaux-inspired wines (Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc). The fruit for this bottling came from the Ink Grade Block Vineyard on the east-facing slope of Howell Mountain. The high-elevation vineyards of Howell Mountain have thin, rocky soils that produce smaller grapes with more tannins and color than grapes grown on the valley floor. While enjoyable now, this wine will develop more subtlety and plushness as its powerful tannins mellow over the next 10 to 15 years.
Sense
The first impression is of black currants, vanilla, cinnamon and espresso with subtle dried flower notes.
Savor
The wine shows deep creme de cassis, brown sugar, licorice and toast flavors that finish with gravelly minerality and firm tannins.
Serve
If you want to enjoy the Cornerstone Cabernet in its youth, match it with red meat—the protein in the meat will soften the wine’s tannins. A simple grilled beef filet can really showcase the complexity of a good Cabernet, but grilled or braised lamb is also a perfect match. Seasoning dishes with herbs like cilantro or mint can bring out the subtle green notes often found in Cabernet Sauvignon. Try it with dishes like Churrasco-Style Steak with Chimichurri; Classic Steaks au Poivre; or New York Strip Steak with Creamed Spinach (recipes at williams-sonoma.com).
Serving Instructions
Serve a little cooler than room temperature: refrigerate the bottle for 10 minutes before serving.
