Winemaker Notes

In the continued quest to deliver impressive quality at a reasonable price, we have moved our vineyard sourcing beyond the confines of Napa Valley. In addition to familiar vineyards in Napa, we have also found high quality vineyards in exciting AVAs such as the Red Hills in Lake County, Yorkville Highlands in Mendocino County, and stalwarts such at Alexander Valley and Dry Creek in Sonoma County. The result is a beautiful wine that exhibits the richness, balance, and elegance that has come to be expected from the Starmont Cabernet Sauvignon. Dark red in color, with aromas of dark berries and some herbs. Our Cabernet is restrained in style, not over-ripe or overly extracted. Meant to be balanced and approachable on its own and pair well with food.

Blend: 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petite Sirah, 8% Merlot

COMMENTARY: The 2017 Starmont Winery and Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon highlights the potential of the North Coast AVA. While many folks overlook this AVA designation, this wine shows what wine lovers could potentially be missing. TASTING NOTES: This wine comes to the party with excellent aromas and flavors of substantial black fruit that last nicely into the wine's finish. Bring a juicy, grilled ribeye to the table and watch all the food and wine disappear. (Tasted: July 28, 2020, San Francisco, CA)

This fresh and focused red shows aromas of blackberries and cassis, as well as some vanilla and licorice. Dry and well-balanced. The tannins are rather austere, but it’s a matter of time before it becomes well integrated. Drinkable now, but better after 2021.

Starmont Winery Image

Sitting at the crossroads of Carneros and Napa Valley, Starmont occupies a portion of the historic Stanly Ranch. Established as a wine growing region over 150 years ago, Carneros is world renowned for its Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. With foggy mornings and cool afternoon bay breezes creating the perfect conditions for these varietals, Starmont wines are expressive, food-friendly and distinctly Carneros.

The Starmont story began over 25 years ago, starting as an integral part of the Merryvale brand. Led by the Starmont Chardonnay and delivering high quality Carneros and Napa Valley wines at approachable prices, Starmont complemented the more mature Merryvale portfolio. For a decade and a half, these two brands shared space at our venerable St. Helena facility. It was a perfect partnership, but as Starmont grew from a single wine into a full-fledged brand, it became time to move out.

Opportunity to find a new home was realized in 2005. Starmont acquired 50 acres of prime Carneros vineyard, a portion of the Stanly Ranch Estate first planted in 1872, and broke ground on the new winery the same year. Honoring the heritage of the vineyard, Starmont has constructed a state-of-the-art “green” winery. Among other steps taken towards sustainability, the Starmont Winery recycles 100% of winery process water, diverts over 98% of waste away from ending up in a landfill and generates enough electricity each day to power over 250 homes. In creating a certified Napa Green Winery, Starmont ensures that the surrounding area will remain pristine for future generations to enjoy.

Reaching up California's coastline and into its valleys north of San Francisco, the North Coast AVA includes six counties: Marin, Solano, Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino and Lake. While Napa and Sonoma enjoy most of the glory, the rest produce no shortage of quality wines in an intriguing and diverse range of styles.

Climbing up the state's rugged coastline, the chilly Marin County, just above the City and most of Sonoma County, as well as Mendocino County on the far north end of the North Coast successfully grow cool-climate varieties like Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and in some spots, Riesling. Inland Lake County, on the other hand, is considerably warmer, and Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc produce some impressive wines with affordable price tags.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
