“Rock-star Cabernet for everyday!”

Former Cheval Blanc, Tignanello, and Bryant Family Team • One To Buy By The Case(s)!

By David Gettenberg

Forget $75. Forget $60. Forget $50 

"2018 Napa Valley Cabernet vintage belongs in an echelon with the finest of the past two decades." Decanter

This is the best thirty-something Napa Cabernet you will taste - and we have tasted quite a bit of Cali Cab over the years.

With prices in Napa still on the rise, Stack House is an "under-the-radar" standout. We hope it stays that way!

Jeb Dunnuck once called Stack House "a killer value in Napa Valley Cabernet."  Jeb Dunnuck

Indeed it is - especially when you read below who is behind this rock-star red.

Stack House explodes out of the glass with ripe fruit and highlights of blackberry, cassis, mocha, black currant, blueberries, and clove. Though rich, textured and opulent, the mouth-feel is sublime. Secondary notes of dark chocolate, clove spice, black pepper and black cherry are interlaced with toasty oak.

Who Is Behind This Hidden Gem?  

Husband and wife team Anna and Mario Monticelli. Anna worked harvest at Cheval Blanc, was the former assistant winemaker at Bryant Family and winemaker at Piña. Her husband, Mario, spent time at Antinori and worked at Quintessa and Hundred Acre. 

That is a well-rounded bio for both!

Crafted for early consumption but with the ability to age for another 7 years, this is one of the best-kept secrets in Napa Valley and a red to buy by the case(s).
