Starmont Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Grown in top vineyards across the Napa Valley, Starmont Cabernet lots were hand selected for their rich, robust flavors and fine tannins. Very dark red in color, with aromas of dark berries and some herbs with background notes of baking spices. Fruit flavors along with subtle toasty oak are framed by well balanced acidity and well resolved tannins. The finish shows great structure with well integrated and resolved tannins. Ours is a restrained style Napa Cab, not over-ripe or overly extracted. Meant to be balanced and approachable on its own, and also pair well with food.

Wine EnthusiastTones of black currant and oak highlight the light-bodied, elegant palate. Interwoven tannins offer a velvety texture, while the tart black fruit is adorned by accents of cedar, graphite and a hint of dark chocolate.

Beringer Waymaker Red 2014To maintain the unique characteristics of the different lots from varying areas of the vineyard, Chief Winemaker Laurie Hook monitored each of the lots through vinification and aging. The wines were then aged in a combination of seasoned oak barrels with a small amount of new oak for 17 months to both round and soften the tannins and bring in some additional spice notes. The foundation of the Waymaker is Syrah, a varietal that demonstrates great richness and generosity from Camatta Hills. Cabernet Sauvignon comprises the majority of the balance of the blend, and lends great depth of fruit as well as lifted spice notes. Finally, a portion of Petite Sirah was blended in for its aromatics and rich, inky color.
