Aging: 20 Months in 85% New French Oak
Tasting notes: Red Wine. 86% Cabernet Sauvignon 8% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc. The 2017 Stack House Cabernet Sauvignon bursts from the glass with an intense plethora of dark brooding fruits including black currant, blackberry pie, black cherry, and huckleberry compote. Following the fruit, layers of crushed volcanic rock, wet earth, toasty oak, baking spice, and black pepper emerge. This full-bodied wine exhibits vibrant acidity, massive structure, and an everlasting finish
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 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. ~92 Wine Advocate
Made by Anna Monticelli, the 2017 Stack House Cabernet Sauvignon checks in as 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, and the balance Cabernet Franc. Coming 90% from mountain fruit and brought up in 85% new French oak, it's one of the best values in the vintage and has beautiful cassis, toasted spice, gravelly earth, and hints of graphite. It's beautifully done, medium to full-bodied, and textured, and drinks way above its price point. Anna commented that this was the finest vintage of this cuvée she’s made ~92 Jeb Dunnuck
