2011 Stepping Stone Corallina Rose of Syrah by Cornerstone Napa Valley

Stepping Stone by Cornerstone in lovely Napa Valley always produces a consistent wine with vibrant fruit. What I love about these wines along with their flavor is the versatility, you can use them as conversation wines, pair them with food, enjoy as an everyday wine all of which are a perfect match. The Corallina Rose was so refreshing exactly what I was looking for to sip and cool off during our hot streak.

Love the nose with fresh ripe strawberry, raspberry, fresh cut roses, cinnamon spice, creamy vanilla, citrus and floral notes. So crisp and sets your senses in motion.

Outstanding flavor with creamy strawberry, ripe raspberry, hints of cranberry and a wonderful cinnamon spice. The finish is long and juicy and really showcases the strawberry/raspberry/cranberry combination. Love the middle of the taste with its creamy character. Rose at it's very best!

Craig three cheers to Stepping Stone by Cornerstone for producing top notch juice. Folks do not miss the chance to stop by the tasting room in Yountville for your Cornerstone and Stepping Stone wines. Relax, taste and buy some of this tasty wine. Cornerstone Cellars Napa

Glad to hear Craig has another good one on his hands at Cornerstone-it is a pretty cool place to stop in for a taste in Yountville and reminds me a bit of what Napa must have felt like 30 years ago before the temple's started being built at every winery.
