STONES No. 3

Perrarus Block 3 from the Oakville Tench Vineyard may be the most significant and extreme vineyard of the Stones portfolio of vineyards. Sharing the fence line of Screaming Eagle, the vineyard soil resembles an ancient cobblestone street of red rock and minerals like no other vineyard in the Napa Valley. Also a Clone 4 selection, this site exhibits gravelly texture with some loamy soil undertones.

2016 STONES No. 3

100 PTS ~ Jeb Dunnuck
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.

2015 STONES No. 3

96 PTS ~ Robert Parker Wine Advocate

The 2015 Stones No. 3 from the Tench Vineyard in Oakville has an opaque garnet-purple color and is profoundly scented of crème de cassis, blackberry compote and dried mulberries with suggestions of dusty earth. Full-bodied and firmly constructed with generous black fruit, it finishes long and savory.

Drink 2017-2037.

2014 STONES No. 3

98 PTS ~ ROBERT PARKER JR

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Stones No. 3 comes from the Oakville Tench Vineyard, which is in a high-rent district and near Screaming Eagle and Harbison sites. This is a pure red soil area, and the result is a gravelly, opaque purple wine with pure blueberry and crème de cassis notes intermixed with some loamy soil undertones, Christmas fruitcake and spice box, followed by a full-bodied, opulent wine with adequate acidity and sweet, well-integrated tannin.

Drink 2017-2036.
