About This Wine:
But Monticello is about more than eye candy — much more. Under the stewardship of the Corley family, it’s also known for crafting some of the finest wines in the valley, and its Proprietary Red Wine has gained a reputation not only for quality, but also consistency.
In fact, the 2014 vintage represents the third of four consecutive vintages that have been hailed universally as phenomenal. It’s a blend of nearly equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, all grown in Napa’s Oak Knoll District. The Cab and the Cab Franc came from the estate Monticello Vineyard, while the Merlot was grown in the nearby Knollwood Vineyard.
Judicious blending trials brought us to this final cuvee, which displays ripe fruit, great structure and phenomenal balance. It’s a beautiful wine from a beautiful estate.
