One of the best Napa Cabs under $40 we've found this year!  2018 is an incredible vintage in Napa that winemakers are describing as a dream vintage with near perfect growing conditions. Understandably, the new Stack House Cabernet is a level above the previous vintages. If you’re looking for a high-quality Napa Valley Cabernet that’s priced for everyday enjoyment, grab a few cases of this one.

92 Points Jeb Dunnuck:
"Made by Anna Monticelli, the Stack House Cabernet Sauvignon checks in as 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, and the balance Cabernet Franc. Coming 90% from mountain fruit and brought up in 85% new French oak, it's one of the best values in the vintage and has beautiful cassis, toasted spice, gravelly earth, and hints of graphite. It's beautifully done, medium to full-bodied, and textured, and drinks way above its price point. Anna commented that this was the finest vintage of this cuvée she’s made."

*#2 Wine Value of 2016* -  Robert Parker:  "This Cabernet Sauvignon Stack House is an elegant sleeper selection and a terrific value from Napa Valley. This blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot and Merlot was aged in two-thirds new French oak for almost two years prior to bottling. Finesse style black and red currants compete with some tobacco leaf and loamy soil undertones in a medium-bodied, deliciously fruity, sexy style that offers immediate drinkability and can actually age decently for up to 7-8 years."

Stack House Cabernet is Made by husband and wife team Anna & Mario Monticelli. Anna’s experience includes work as former assistant winemaker at Bryant Family and winemaker at Piña. Her husband Mario has worked alongside legendary winemaker Philippe Melka at Quintessa, Hundred Acre, Vineyard 29, Melka and Lail.
