Seven Stones winery is a 45-acre winery estate nestled within the Meadowood Resort in St. Helena, just above the Meadowood Resort. Ron and Anita Wornick originally purchased the undeveloped plot as a family estate, planting a single acre of Cabernet Sauvignon in 1996 and building a jewel-box winery with recreational family winemaking in mind. Over time, it became evident that the property, surrounded by some of Napa’s most prized vineyards, possessed the well-drained, rocky, volcanic soils that could produce world-class wine. Aaron Pott was hired as winemaker, and the inaugural release, the 2005 Seven Stones Cabernet Sauvignon, received high critical praise and sold out quickly, coaxing the family to add a few more Lilliputian vineyard blocks and upgrade the winery so that they could coax the highest possible quality out of the exceptional 'terroir.' They intend to remain a small, estate winery, with no more than a few hundred cases produced each year.
'This tiny 3-acre vineyard high in the Vaca Mountains, above the well-known luxury resort of Meadowood, boasts Aaron Pott as their winemaking consultant. The wines are fabulous, but, sadly, there are rarely more than 300 cases produced in each vintage.' Robert M. Parker Jr.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is a magnificent effort made by well-known consultant Aaron Pott, and is pretty much as one would expect from such a great vintage and the terroir. Dense purple with notes of crushed rock, blueberry and blackberry fruit as well as touches of licorice, graphite and camphor, the wine is dense and multidimensional, with sweet tannin and stunning concentration. Drink it over the next 25+ years.

Robert Parker, October 2015

Wine SpectatorA tour de force, musclebound, tannic and chewy, this offers loamy earth, cedary oak, black licorice and tobacco notes at the core. A candidate for cellaring. Best from 2020 through 2030. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 320 cases made.

James Laube, 2016
