2009 Monument Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon
Monument Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from a handful of blocks situated on the spine of the primary mountain crest that runs through the estate. Different soils (approx. 25 types) create hundreds of unique flavors and textures. The Monument Ridge conveys aromas and flavors of dried blackberry leaves, juniper, cardamom, black pepper, and wet, black slate. The mouthfeel is defined by mature light tannins with a distinct concentration, dark chocolate finish and a sagebrush note so common to the wines from this ridge.
