Since 1982, Stuhlmuller Vineyards has built a reputation as growers of world-class grapes, selling their coveted fruit to a number of top area wineries. By the mid-‘90s, Fritz Stuhlmuller was so inspired by the complex wines being made from his family’s vineyard that he established a small, artisan winery bearing the Stuhlmuller name.
In 2000 Stuhlmuller Vineyards built a new winery on the property, sustainably farmed and sized precisely to handle the small amounts of world-class, estate fruit the Stuhlmullers select to create their wines. Guided by gifted winemaker Leo Hansen, Stuhlmuller Vineyards handcrafts, small-lot wines that embody a rich, expressive charm, and a distinctive sense of place.
Boasting the traditional and beautiful elements of a great Alexander Valley Cabernet, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon has notes of deep, black cherries, currants and sage. On the palate, age-worthy tannins add structure and definition to the rich, dark berry flavors with a balanced natural acidity providing length and freshness.
