Wine of the Month
12 or more units
The intense dark ruby red color of the Cabernet Sauvignon is reflective of this full-bodied, flavorful wine. The core of black currant and hints of cedar and spice along with cocoa aromas echoed by rich persistent flavors of plush ripe fruit, dark chocolate and anise are all supported by balanced rich velvety tannins.
Cabernet Sauvignon from Monahan Ranch, Bench, and Terrace vineyards (Estate) as well as Adelaida District. Petite Sirah the Monahan Ranch (Estate). Merlot from Adelaida and Creston Districts. Petit Verdot from the Creston District. Cabernet Franc from the Brady Vineyard.
This wine has the largest proportion of Estate fruit in our wine lineup. We crisscross the AVA to source grapes from warm sites with good exposure. This helps us create a juicy, full-bodied wine. Aged in French and Eastern European Oak for 18 months.
