Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.0%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Dark red with good density. Aromas of sweet red and black currants, brambly blackberry jam, black olive, dried herbs and violets. The wine has a soft entry, round with medium weight, toasty oak notes, and very good length.

The 2009 vintage reds are showing excellent quality and ripeness at slightly lower alcohol levels. The 2009 Starmont Cabernet Sauvignon is approachable now and should be consumed within 8 years of the vintage.

Blend: 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11 % Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 3% Malbec

Critical Acclaim

"A pretty, entry-level offering, the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Starmont is laced with sweet red berries, flowers, spices and licorice. This mid-weight Cabernet puts a premium on juiciness and approachability. It is a delicious wine to drink now and over the next few years. Even better, it is a terrific value."

Very approachable Napa cab. Not too fruit forward more earthy/oak notes. Nice tannin's not too overwhelming as some cabs can be. Will definitely be buying again.

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
