One of California's most historic vineyards, Monte Rosso is nestled 1,200 feet above the Sonoma Valley in the majestic Mayacamas mountain range. The red volcanic soils and low-yielding old vines on this steep, rugged mountaintop have produced treasured grapes for our family's portfolio of fine wines since founder Louis M. Martini purchased the legendary vineyard in 1938.

Wine AdvocateAn absolutely outrageous wine and probably one of the great all-time Cabernet Sauvignons from Sonoma is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Monte Rosso Vineyard Sonoma Valley. This is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the relatively recent Moon Mountain AVA, that aged for 27 months in 67% new French and 14 % new American oak. This is a wine of thrilling levels of intensity, with an incredible fragrance of spring flowers, blue fruits, black fruits, especially crème de cassis and blackberry, loamy soil undertones, and a touch of licorice and smoke. The wine is full-bodied, with magnificent fruit intensity and purity, loads of glycerin (15.5% alcohol) and a finish of a good 40+ seconds. This is a great bottle of wine that can still be purchased for less than $100.00, which is increasingly rare in Northern California. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2040.
