Our 2014 Starbeam is a captivating blend of 98% Napa Valley Cabernet and 2% Petit Verdot that is an instant Starfield classic! On the nose, you are greeted with aromas of blueberry pie, boysenberry, cocoa nib, currant and holiday spices with hints of vanilla, lavender and bay leaf. On the palate this wine is opulently fruit forward and plush with an intriguing savory note that lasts through the long, lush finish. Ripe, black cherry, cassis and figs are the foundation of this beauty with notable flavors of oregano, black pepper, coffee and most distinctly, rich, dark chocolate. The well-balanced acidity and finely polished tannins ensure this wine will continue to age gracefully now through 2026.
