About Our Ratings

Sbragia Family 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Monte Rosso Vyd., Sonoma
Mike Martini, whose family bought Monte Rosso in the late 1930s, shares a couple of blocks with Ed Sbragia every year. At 1,200 feet elevation, this is a classic mountain vineyard, resting firmly on the southwest side of the Mayacamas mountain range. Sitting above the fog line, the vineyard’s iron-rich soils are red, rocky and well drained. The old, head-pruned vines struggle for nutrients and the rich, concentrated fruit shows it. A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petite Verdot, aged 24 months in new French Nevers oak barrels. Robert Parker scored this 93+ saying "From one of the great historic vineyards of Northern California, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Monte Rosso Vineyard, like all of the remaining Cabernet Sauvignons, is aged in 100% new French oak for two years prior to bottling. This is an exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon that can be drunk now or cellared for 25-30 years. Beautiful crème de cassis, cedar wood, forest floor and earthy notes are present in this big, full-throttle, dense Cabernet Sauvignon. The tannins are elevated, but fine and well-integrated. The alcohol is 14.8%, and the wine exhibits a classic style that should prove to be uncommonly long-lived and extremely promising. This is a beauty."
