Mounts Family Winery
The Wine – Wow, what a nice Cab! This dark ruby hued wine has a nose full of cassis, black cherry, black raspberry and licorice. It also has a hint of oak. On the palate I picked up the cassis, along with some red current, vanilla and a dark chocolate covered cherry. The finish was lovely, with the fruit lingering a nice long time. I really love this wine now, and it will be drinking nicely for years to come.
My Experiences Visiting The Winery – Mounts Family Winery sits on a beautiful piece of property in the Dry Creek Valley region of Sonoma. We tasted in an outdoor picnic-like setting, overlooking a valley of vineyards. We were there on Valentine’s Day of 2010, and they were serving some wonderful cupcakes and chocolate along with the wine tastes. The owners are very welcoming in a genuine way. David Mounts is also the winemaker and does a bang up job! We especially loved this Cab, along with their Cabernet Franc and their Syrah.
The Journey – We came across Mounts Family Winery by accident. While driving to another winery, we saw some balloons with a sign, inviting us to Mounts for Valentine’s Day. We love discovering new places, so we headed their way. The drive up to their winery is on a long, gorgeous driveway that leads to some beautiful views and some wonderful wines!
