WINEMAKING

In our 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 20% of the grapes from familiar vineyards in Napa, the core of the blend for this 2018 is from vineyards in Alexander Valley, sprinkled with some high elevation fruit from Dry Creek and Yorkville Highlands. The result is a beautiful wine that exhibits the richness, balance, and elegance that is expected from Starmont Cabernet Sauvignon.

TASTING NOTES

The nose offers a layered complexity of blackberries, cassis, bramble, and dark chocolate. A fresh entry on the palate is evidence of the fruit’s natural acidity, which gives way to cedar accents on the mid-palate. Present but refined tannins indicate a gentle extraction which has created balance throughout and length on the finish.
