TASTING NOTES: 93 Points - Mount Peak Winery - Sentinel Cabernet Sauvignon
Sentinel™ Cabernet Sauvignon is inspired by the shield-shaped block overseeing the entrance to Monte Rosso Vineyard, a site that produces grapes with the layers and power that are the foundation of the great Cabernet.
Fruit for the 2016 Sentinel Cabernet Sauvignon was selected from Monte Rosso Vineyard (84%) and growing partners in Napa Valley. Dense dark fruit notes abound in this robust Cabernet Sauvignon, with ripe blackberry, cassis and wild blueberries leading the charge. Pronounced earth tones follow suit, along with a Mayan chocolate spiciness on the firm, lasting finish
MOUNT PEAK WINERY
The Mount Peak story begins more than a century ago at the celebrated Monte Rosso Vineyard and culminates with the revival of Mount Peak Winery, a vestige of one of California's ghost wineries. Our wines are inspired by this great place, and we pay tribute to the extraordinary winery that once stood there by capturing its enduring spirit in our wine.
Over 130 years later only the ruins of the winery remain, yet the vineyard's still-thriving vines have persisted—standing silent above the fog line, occupying the space between earth and sky. The ghost winery and the world-class Monte Rosso Vineyard are perched at nearly 1,300 feet along the spine of the Mayacamas Mountains, just straddling Napa and Sonoma valleys. Monte Rosso's steep hillsides, robed in bright red, iron-rich soils, are set against a dramatic backdrop of manzanita and madrone, under the expanse of piercing blue skies.
