RATINGS

94+ The Wine Advocate

...deep garnet-purple and sings of crushed blackcurrants, black cherries and wild blueberries with nuances of lilacs, baker's chocolate, cigar box, pencil lead and truffles. Full-bodied and laden with black fruit and savory layers, it has a fantastic foundation of very ripe, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with amazing length.

93Vinous / IWC

...a bold wine with all of the rugged character and savoriness of hillside Sonoma Cabernets. Smoke, black pepper, herb, graphite, licorice and gravel, along with firm tannins, give the Mountain Estate its unique personality...

REGION

United States, California, Sonoma County

Sonoma County is not an AVA, but it is a commonly used informal designation for wines made outside of more specific AVAs within Sonoma, which is a large wine producing region just west of Napa Valley. Though Sonoma is often overshadowed by its glamorous neighbor Napa Valley, it has a long history of wine production. The area specialized in jug wine until the mid-20th century, when Sonoma producers took a cue from Napa and started improving quality. Unlike Napa, where Cabernet Sauvignon is king, Sonoma specialized in Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Zinfandel, though excellent Cabs are produced too. There are at present 16 AVAs within Sonoma County, and, like much of the West Coast of the United States, new AVAs are created in Sonoma County with regularity. Some Sonoma appellations, such as the Russian River Valley, are renowned for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

TYPE

Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
