Stone the Crows is a single vineyard, estate grown wine, produced entirely of fruit from their Three Twins Vineyard in Conn Valley. Densely planted in 2005 on steep hillsides, the vines are pruned to yield no more than three tons per acre. Thomas Rivers Brown has been making their wines since their debut vintage in 2009. 2016 Marked yet another outstanding vintage in Napa Valley, following suit with 2013, 2014, and 2015. The Three Twins vineyard, always an earlier site due to being hillside, ripened evenly with a medium crop load, with the first blocks coming off in late September. This turned out to be magnificent timing as it preceded the heavy October rains. "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals pronounced fresh black currants, red currants and black raspberries notes with wafts of Provence herbs & tilled earth. Medium to full-bodied, firm and chewy, it has a vibrant fruit core with plenty of herb-laced freshness and a long, lifted finish."
