Winery Notes: “The 2018 Stack House Cabernet Sauvignon possesses a stunning bouquet of blackberries, black cherries, raspberries, crushed volcanic rock, damp earth, toasty oak and baking spice. This wine exhibits vibrant acidity, freshness and extraordinary purity. The palate reveals soft tannins and a beautifully layered finish. The 2018 Stack House is an amazing value of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. “
Robert Parker 93 Points (2017): “The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley comes mainly from 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.”
Jeb Dunnuck 93 Points (2017): “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.”
