Deep and well structured, the Stack House Cabernet Sauvignon has been described as an “elegant sleeper selection and a terrific value.” The lions share of the grapes that went into this wine came from prestigious sites in the Howell Mountain, Spring Mountain, Diamond Mountain, and Atlas Peak AVAs. Created by winemakers Anna and Mario Monticelli, the wine was aged 20 months in 85% new French oak barrels, which brought elegant spice an spiciness.
“Stack House Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2017 comes mainly from declassified mountain fruit. It is made up of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc, aged 20 months in 85% new French oak. Deep garnet-purple colored, it features bombastic notes of black cherries, crème de cassis and warm plums with touches of cedar chest, pencil lead, menthol and forest floor. Full-bodied, firm and grainy, it has bold freshness and tons of black fruit layers, finishing on a spicy note. 5,000 cases made.” Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
