From the bottle:
“For a winemaker, each new vintage is a stepping stone. One step in a never-ending voyage of exploration. At Cornerstone Cellars our Stepping Stone wines are crafted by winemaker Jeff Keene to be exceptional wines and exceptional values. Each vintage we scour the vineyards and cellars searching for exciting wines from unique varieties to become our Stepping Stones.
The 2010 Stepping Stone White Rocks! By Cornerstone begins with a nice, sweet aroma of apricot and peaches. The wine does not taste as sweet as the nose, but has a light sweetness to it that is pretty good. The primary flavors are apricot and tropical fruit (guava) and also has some underlying minerality that gives it pretty good balance. The minerality really comes through on the short finish. This is a light and simple wine that is easy to drink. About the same on day 2.
