In the continued quest to deliver impressive quality at a reasonable price, we have moved our vineyard sourcing beyond the confines of Napa Valley. In addition to familiar vineyards in Napa, we have also found high quality vineyards in exciting AVAs such as the Red Hills in Lake County, Yorkville Highlands in Mendocino County, and stalwarts such as Alexander Valley and Dry Creek in Sonoma County. The result is a beautiful wine that exhibits the richness, balance, and elegance that has come to be expected from the Starmont Cabernet Sauvignon. Dark red in color, with aromas of dark berries and some herbs. Our Cabernet is restrained in style, not over-ripe or overly extracted. Meant to be balanced and approachable on its own and pair well with food.
Blended with 11% Petite Sirah and 8% Merlot, this is well made and fairly priced, opening in savory earthy dried herb, cedar and pencil shavings. Hearty structure and concentrated cassis and currant flavor combine nicely to make for a smooth balanced palate of refinement.
