Wine AdvocateA pretty, entry-level offering, the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Starmont is laced with sweet red berries, flowers, spices and licorice. This mid-weight Cabernet puts a premium on juiciness and approachability. It is a delicious wine to drink now and over the next few years. Even better, it is a terrific value. The blend is 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 3% Malbec. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017.

Wine EnthusiastA solid if unexciting Cabernet, dry, tannic and balanced. Shows blackberry and black currant flavors that are tinged with smoky oak. Drink now.
