Description

Winemaker Notes

Our Monte Rosso Cabernet Sauvignon was handcrafted from grapes 100 percent from the legendary Monte Rosso Vineyard. This impressive, full-bodied red wine has great depth and a surprisingly soft mouthfeel for such concentrated fruit. The wine swirls with aromas that include black cherry, earth and the classic Monte Rosso spice. On the palate, it offers red and dark fruit flavors including raspberry and blackberry, plus black fig and hints of dusty chocolate and espresso. Aging in French and American Oak created assertive-but-smooth tannins that melt seamlessly into a lingering, elegant finish filled with flavors of anise, toasted oak and vanilla.

Critical Acclaim

Tasting Panel
Concentrated aromas from a wildflower garden appear alongside an orchard of black cherries. Decades of impeccable grape-growing in this world-class vineyard express themselves with elegance through the texture, flavor, and scents of mountain brush present in this wine. Chewy tannins and a dry palate lure notes of black pepper, slate, and an energetic mélange of tangerine peel, blackberry, and cassis. Filled in with mocha and dark red fruit, the triumphant finish further explores the complexity and depth of this expression.

This bold, flavorful wine offers well-integrated tones of red currant, dried cherry, dusty leather and clove. Savory and profound in elongated tannins, it holds its powerful ripeness and structure with pride, showing the stuffing to age well. Best 2024–2029.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Monte Rosso Vineyard has an earthy/meaty/gamey nose with aromas of menthol, charcuterie, cassis and truffles. The medium to full-bodied mouth is firm and cedary with muscular fruit and a long, earthy finish.
