On the nose, dominant notes of ripe blackberries, crème de cassis and dark chocolate truffles are complemented by bay leaf and fine leather. The complex and textured palate showcases flavors of blackberry crumble and star anise offset by earthy undertones and toasty oak. Built for your cellar, this wine will age gracefully over the years to come. The last to be harvested of all our wines, these grapes were hand-picked in late October. Fermentation took place in small open-top tanks, allowing for precise and gentle extraction of color and flavor. Each lot was aged in French oak barrels and evaluated individually, with the final blend occurring the summer of the following year. In total, the wine was aged for 26 months in barrel (82% new) and a year in bottle. <br><br> <b>Winemaker Notes:</b><br> Grape growing on Howell Mountain requires the practice of patience. On a sunny yet cool hillside, these inconspicuous vineyards surrounded by a thicket of Redwood trees yield highly concentrated fruit that takes longer to ripen. In 2017, abundant winter rainfall fueled vine growth early in the season. A mild spring, followed by steady warmth in the summer and fall, led to a slightly early harvest with ripe, fruit-driven intensity.

The Monte Rosso Vineyard rolls across steep, rugged terrain in the majestic Mayacamas Mountains nearly 1,300 feet above the Sonoma Valley. Owned by the Louis M. Martini Winery since 1938, it is named for its rich, red volcanic soils and has produced award-winning wines for three generations. The vineyard’s mix of high altitude, position above the fog line, low-yielding vines and ideal western exposure produces wines with a unique sense of terroir. Monte Rosso is one of California’s most prized locations for wine grapes. Select Cabernet Sauvignon blocks were carefully hand harvested and hand sorted, then gravity fed into small, open top fermenters for cold soak of up to five days. After fermentation, the wine was racked by gravity into oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and aging. The blocks were aged separately for months before the final blend was assembled and sent back to barrel for more aging. The wine was barrel aged for 26 months in a combination of French oak barrels, 75% new, and American oak barrels, 19% new.

Every vintage offers a distinct, vivid expression of this renowned site. The 2015 growing season on the mountaintop was another in a string of warm, dry seasons and one of the earliest we’ve seen. It started with unseasonably warm temperatures in late winter and spring, leading to an early bud break. A cool May during bloom created a smaller than average crop, then mild weather through spring, summer and harvest allowed slow, even ripening that built full ripeness and complexity. The result was grapes with intense aromatics, concentrated ripe fruit flavors and outstanding structure and balance.

Grapes for this wine were handpicked from several of our premium Napa Valley vineyards, including William Hill, Sun Lake, Cypress Ranch, Sage Canyon and other select growers.

Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes were carefully destemmed and transferred to upright tanks for a two day cold soak. To build its round, elegant mouthfeel, the wine saw 15 to 20 days of maceration time and was pumped over two to three times daily. Each lot was aged and meticulously evaluated separately, with the final blend taking place in May 2019.

Our grapes were picked in mid-to-late September, entirely by hand. At the winery, the grapes were pressed to tank, cold settled and racked off lees for fermentation. This gentle, oxygen-free process is utilized to maintain the wine’s signature crispness and fruit-forward character. Fermentation took place in a combination of stainless steel, oak barrel and concrete egg. A small amount of new French oak was used during barrel fermentation to build a rich and complex palate. Vintage 2019 was warm and evenly paced. Plentiful winter rains and a cool spring delayed budbreak, leading to rains in late May. By June, a consistently warm and steady summer emerged, setting the stage for expressive and vibrant wines. Vines developed clean, healthy clusters with rich, complex flavors and excellent structure. With exceptional growing conditions, harvest began later in the year and high-quality fruit was delivered into the cellar.
