Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 99+

This vineyard, high above the Meadowood Resort, has produced a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that was aged in 100% new French oak for 22 months. The label says 14.9% natural alcohol. Having once visited the proprietors, the Wornicks, it is well worth the effort to get an invitation to their property, given the extraordinary sculpture that one confronts on the high steep hillside road leading to the residence. This wine blew me away in the tasting, and again, it is another of the absolutely compelling, great, great wines of this vintage. Of course, it is limited in production, which is always a problem, but this is a candidate for perfection. Inky, bluish/purple to the rim, it has a seamless, full-bodied opulence, with stunningly pure creme de cassis, black cherry and liqueur notes mixed with licorice and incense, yet the 100% new oak is completely concealed. The wine has a hint of minerality and extraordinary richness, texture and a multidimensional mouthfeel and finish. This is one of the great young wines I have tasted recently and, of course, it's still a baby at age ten. Kudos to Seven Stones! By the way, this is the only time I've met one of the Wine Advocate Bulletin Board participants, Roy Piper, who is doing his own thing these days, and I look forward to tasting his wines.

purely domestic wine report | Rating: 96

shows truffle, licorice and spice with a bit of herb in the nose with a dense and polished palate of dark richness. There is lots of texture on the finish with delicious and harmonious balance. The finish is chocolate mole and a bit of graphite.

The nose is full of an unbelievable amount of sun-warmed mountain blackberry, vibrant cassis and cherry.The palate begins with a loamy smoothness that continues to develop more underlying complexity with air.During my 45 minutes of tasting, essences of beautifully polished kirsch-like cherry, allspice, blue plum, vanilla and blueberry emerge to weave across the palate. Production is 235 cases and is primarily to mailing list only.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

Rich and expressive, with ripe, potent, concentrated tiers of spicy currant, fresh earth, mineral, sage and dried berry flavors that are tight, focused and concentrated, ending with a long, persistent finish.

About This Producer


Ron and Anita Wornick purchased the last un-developed parcel from the original Meadowood development in 1995 and began the nearly decade-long process of clearing the rocks from what would eventually be their home and vineyard. The winery gets its name from a granite slab sculture that is the focal point of the compound.The first vines were planted in 1995 and the premiere release of the David Abreu-developed property is 2005. Wornick's background is in food science and his company was selected by the US military to produce the MRE (Meals, Ready to Eat) that revolutionized food delivery in the field. Additionally, over the last thirty years he and Anita have developed one of the most important contemporary craft collections in the world. The winemaking team is Aaron Pott, assisted by Roy Piper.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
