One To Buy By The Case(s)!
"A classic taste of Napa Valley." Wine Advocate

What a value!!!

We cannot stress enough how long we have strived to find a stunning sub-$50 Napa Valley Cabernet that wasn't just good, but great.

Success!

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

Forget $50, forget $40. This is the best thirty-something Napa Cabernet we have tasted in years - and we have tasted quite a bit of wine in that time.

The 2015 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.

"It's a killer value in Napa Valley Cabernet...a sexy, layered, elegant style. Again, it's a great value." Jeb Dunnuck

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 has 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 a hidden gem and one to buy by the case(s).

$37.95 per bottle / $455.40 per case
