ABOUT THIS WINE
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.
