Stonestreet Cabernet Sauvignon Monument Ridge 2008

Member Review by VegasOenophile:

Mineral and graphite on the nose, as well as ink and slight licorice. Richly structured with flavors of creme de cassis, juicy blackberry, dark cherry and sweet tannin. Pauillac-like in style. Nice! 10/8/11

The original concept for the Monument Vineyard originated in the early 1990s with a group of five Charles Sturt University Viticulture and Wine Science students. These were mature-age students, successful in their own professions who wanted to become seriously involved in wine growing. Economy of scale seemed to be the way to collectively achieve the individual goals of each of the group members, and so the Cana Viticulture Partnership was formed in which the investing partners have direct managerial control of the project. First thoughts were directed to cooler regions and the high altitude region near Orange in NSW. In recent years this district has developed a reputation for wines with intense flavours and complexity. In the 1950s the CSIRO established a pilot vineyard in the region immediately west of Orange in a slightly lower and warmer environment. This micro-climate offered the prospect of reliable and complete ripening of red grape varieties every year. The CSIRO wines showed great promise, but the times were different, and the research almost forgotten. Read less
