Wine & Spirits Review
Rated 93
Mario Montecello makes this wine from a six-acre vineyard on a rocky, west-facing slope above Napa Valley. The vines were planted in 1997 at an elevation of 1,500 feet, high enough to escape the fog, so they received plenty of sun in the cool 2011 vintage. The fruit ripened to a luscious wash of black currant flavor, the wine structured by mountain-grown tannins that grip the silkiness of the fruit. It's a youthful wine that vibrates with energy, heady with alcohol and the espresso-roast scent of new French oak, framing the juiciness of the fruit and sustaining its richness.

Wine Enthusiast Review
Rated 90

Black and thick, a study in smoky oak and tar, this intense vineyard-designated Cabernet will behave better over time. Brawny tannins surround substantial layers of blackberry and coffee, the feel on the palate weighty and voluptuous. Cellar through 2026.

Wine Tasting Notes
Haystack Cabernet is true to its mountain origins, with intense purple color and aromas of cassis, tar and black fruits. Brooding dark purple fruit flavors with hints of Mexican chocolate and grilled game lead into a mouth-coating and viscous wine teaming with tenacious tannins and lingering through a long finish.
