Stack House is a brickhouse, loaded with dark, brooding fruits held together by a solid mortar of crushed volcanic rock. Full-bodied flavors of blackberry pie and huckleberry compote are layered with vibrant acidity in a massive structure. The price is the only thing small about this big red.
Made by the talented Anna Monticelli and a no brainer purchase for those looking for a great Napa Valley Cabernet that doesn’t break the bank, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon offers up textbook cassis and darker berry fruits as well as notes of lead pencil, peppery herbs, and spice. A blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Malbec, 5% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc, aged 32 months in 50% new oak, drink this round, supple, seamless 2018 over the coming 4-5 years. Best after 2022.
