"Wines of the World: Port and dark chocolate (and other options)"

2004 Starmont Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

If you are not into port with your rich chocolate dessert for Valentines, try a red wine. Fifteen years ago cabernet sauvignon was the first red wine varietal mentioned to go with dark chocolate...

Our suggestions include: Merryvale Starmont Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2004 ($27) is quite silky for a cabernet with rich flavors and subtle tannins. Fruit flavors of raspberry and cassis leave a lush, long aftertaste.

2004 Starmont Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

The Starmont designation is sort of a junior version of Merryvale’s more expensive wines and is often an solid value. So it is with this Cab, whose grapes come from some prestigious vineyards. It’s dry, rich and complex, with a classic Napa balance of firm, sweet tannins, acidity and cassis and cherry fruit. Beautiful now, and should hold well for six years.

2004 Starmont Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

A tasty, bright cab with good acidity. Aromas and flavors of cranberry and rhubarb. Nice mouth-feel. Medium-bodied.
