2013 Stepping Stone By Cornerstone North Coast White Rocks
Several vintages tasted and I can tell you that White Rocks really does rock Cornerstone Cellars! I love this crisp little blend of Chardonnay, Viognier and Muscat Canelli. Easy on the palate and the pocketbook. You may just think you have been swept to the tropics with each sip.
The nose is fruit filled with ripe cantaloupe and juicy honeydew melon. Sliced peaches and sweet pears complimented by lemon/lime zest. Layers of aromas are outstanding.
The mouth says you are in the tropics...relax and enjoy. White peach with just a hint of tartness followed by green apple, cantaloupe, apricot and honeydew melon. The finish is a kiss of sweet pear which begs your palate to "pour me more." Balanced, crisp, clean with nice acidity. Well done my Yountville friends!
Wine country visitors make sure you swing by the tasting room for this awesome tasting blend and sip for yourself. I think you will agree this wine is a must in your cellar.
