93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petite Verdot.
Nestled in the majestic Mayacamas Mountain range nearly 1,000 feet above the Sonoma Valley, is a vineyard that has been producing award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon for three generations. Owned by the Louis M. Martini winery since 1938, the Monte Rosso vineyard (named "Monte Rosso" or "Red Mountain" for its rich, red volcanic soils) is a steep and rugged mountain vineyard with a desirable western exposure that produces wines with a unique sense of terroir.
The Monte Rosso Cabernet Sauvignon is a hand crafted wine sourced from the best vineyard blocks within Monte Rosso. This is a full-bodied wine revealing a dark ruby/purple color, and showcasing an opulent nose of dark berries, licorice, black currants, cherries and tobacco. Flavors of ripe plum with undertones of earthiness and spice, and dried fruit evolve into a rich, long, lingering finish that is impressively structured. It is a perfect complement to warm, earthy dishes, game and red meat such as wild boar, venison and grilled filet mignon.
