Over its 19 years, the annual Monterey Wine Competition has rolled out the welcome mat for great wines the world over. For the second year in a row, V. Sattui Winery was named "Winery of the Year" following another powerful performance. Sattui collected 28 medals overall and walked away with Best of Class for their 2008 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and landed three of its wines — 2008 Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon, 2010 Sattui Family Pinot Noir and 2009 Napa Valley Petite Sirah — in the championship round. All three wines were awarded Platinum. Sattui also had six Gold medals in its big haul.

Planted between 1916 and 1918 in the Dry Creek Valley near Geyserville in northern Sonoma County, the oldest vines in Joe Ramazzotti’s hallowed vineyard came from the old Mazzoni Zinfandel clone, thought to be on e of the original heritage clones dating back to the mid-19th century.
This lovely hillside Cabernet shows expressive, mountain-bred fruit flavors of crushed berry, cassis and plum punctuated by bright herbal notes and cedar.
From the Dry Creek Valley renowned for world-class Zinfandels. This Zinfandel is solidly built, yet shows remarkable constraint and a slight edge of spiciness.
Solera-made, wood-aged wine, fortified with brandy. Our Solera is over 120 years old, one of the oldest in the U.S. The wine is sweet and luscious with flavors of almonds, caramel, toffee and orange zest. It shares similar characteristics with a 20-year-old Tawny Port. A collector’s wine.
"Opulent ...Seductive ...Complex"
This premium proprietary blend which we have named Paradiso (Pahr-a DEEZ-0h) consists of Cabernet Sauvignon (89%), Merlot (8%) and Petit Verdot (3%). This is a profoundly complex and deeply scented wine, where both the grape varieties and the regions from which they came are distinctly expressed.
