Stone the Crows - new from Thomas Rivers Brown

From Winemaker - Thomas Rivers Brown (who makes the famous wines of Schrader among others)  He has made many 100 point wines!

2013 Stone the Crows Cabernet Sauvignon....$133.99
Three Twins VineyardsThe 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Three Twins Vineyard has come together beautifully since I last tasted it. Rich, ample and layered, the 2013 is both unctuous and powerful. Iron, red cherry, pomegranate and tobacco are nicely delineated throughout. This effortless, gracious Cabernet is a hugely appealing wine to drink now and over the next decade or so. The refined, polished finish is pretty hard to resist, even at this early stage.
Rated 94/100 Antonio Galloni, Vnous Media

2013 Stone The Crows Fallen Feathers....$86.99
Three Twins Vineyards
A concentrated, firmly structured, tannic wine, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Fallen Feather has a dense purple color, excellent, rich, pure fruit, but still tightly knit and coiled.
This wine needs 3-4 years cellaring and should drink well for up to 20 or more years.
Rated 94+/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
