Starmont sets its sights on overlooked vineyard gems in search of that quality-to-value sweet spot in California Cabernet. The core blend of this 2018 is from across the Alexander Valley, with a little high elevation fruit sprinkled in. Blackberries, cassis and bramble meld with dark chocolate for a rich, elegant palate. Refined tannins bring balance and length on the finish. Another timeless beauty at a great price.
Blackberry, clove, dark chocolate and dried chili on the nose. It’s medium-bodied with firm, sleek tannins and fresh acidity. Lingering wild berries and chocolate. Try from 2022.
