Winemaker Notes
This wine displays all of the lush, concentrated red fruit character that has come to define Cabernet Sauvignon from Monitor Ledge. There is a beautiful balance between depth and brightness, with oak-inspired layers of caramel, chestnut and hazelnut complementing mouthwatering flavors of dark cherry, raspberry, red currant and strawberry. A smooth, creamy mid-palate leads to a finish of fruit and sweet spice that showcases the wine’s length and dimension.
