Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16 % Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot.

Our 2006 Starmont Cabernet Sauvignon shows enticing aromas of black cherry, cassis, raspberry, vanilla and cedar. The mouthfeel is dense and focused with a long finish. The wine will improve with short term cellaring. Our favorite pairings include strong cheeses and lamb chops.
