    Winemaker's Notes:

    Grown in top vineyards across the Napa Valley, Starmont Cabernet lots were hand selected for their rich and robust flavors and fine tannins. The wine exhibits aromas of cassis, brambly blackberry jam, perfumed violets and baked pastry notes. The mouthfeel is rich and broad with fine tannins leading to a very long finish.

    Blend: 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot, 2% Cab Franc

    Critical Acclaim:

    The red wine portfolio includes an excellent value, the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Starmont, which packs a lot of flavor and intensity for its price. This dense ruby/purple-colored Cabernet reveals plenty of cassis, cedar, licorice and spice notes. It is a delicious, medium-bodied wine with supple tannins and a long finish. Drink it over the next decade.

    Ripe and fruity, this complex red displays attractive plum, cherry and berry flavors. Drink now through 2019.

    We really like Merryvale, this is their least expensive wine and it beats anything else in that price point. Also, when you visit their winery they are very generous and really nice.

    I really liked this bottle from start to finish, nice big bold flavor of the blackberry base and just enough tanins and flavors in it to taste them but not over power the wine, has a nice long finish.

    This was my first purchase from Wine.com. I picked it becuase it had such high reviews from others. My wife and I agree it is a decent cab but lacks finish and complexity. We have had other wines in the same price range that have been much better.
