I was expecting more from this bottle. Too tart. Weak body.

Had a bold almost flavor on the nose, but really opened up smoothly as it breathed. Decent wine for the price, but nothing to really wow you.

Opaque plum-purple hue, with aromas of berry bramble, cigar and cedar; seamless palate notes of blackberry, black currants, cigar box and buttery vanilla with integrated tannins(tasted 2012).

The wine is round and full on the palate with forward fruit and great structure from the balanced acid and tannins.

Der Cabernet Sauvignon Starmont eröffnet den Auftakt in einem dunklen Purpurrot. In der Nase nimmt man Aromen roter und schwarzer Johannisbeeren, Vanille und exotischer Gewürze wahr. Rund und harmonisch präsentiert er sich am Gaumen, mit weichen, gut eingebundenen Tanninen und einem langen Nachhall.

Our 2006 Napa Cabernet is dark purple in color with aromas of violets, cassis framed by cedar and vanilla. The mouthfeel is focused with fine tannins and a long finish.

Tasted alongside some Napa Cabs costing more than twice as much, this showed proud. It's dry, richly structured and the firm tannins even suggest a few years in the cellar. Won't disappoint with its wealth of black currants, blackberries, minerals an... Wine Enthusiast. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2006 Merryvale Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

The Starmont designation is sort of a junior version of Merryvalersquo;s more expensive wines and is often a solid value. So it is with this Cab, whose grapes come from some prestigious vineyards. Itrsquo;s dry, rich and complex, with a classic Napa balance of firm, sweet tannins, acidity and cassis and cherry fruit. Beautiful now, and should hold well for six years.
