Wine Review: This opaque and midnight blue colored Cabernet Sauvignon from the Alexander Valley opens with a pleasant black plum and mild black raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty mild black currant with nicely integrated oak. I also detected faint hints of minerality, plum, and black raspberry. The finish is dry and its mild tannins are very friendly. I would enjoy this elegant Cab in the near term with a filet mignon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2009 Monument Ridge is a textbook expression of an even, beautiful vintage on the mountain: aromas of violet, blackberry and blueberry pop from the glass. In the background, one finds complex notes of star anise, ginger and wet slate. While richness is evident on the palate, a real freshness persists as well, an element that's carried through the graceful, lengthy finish.
