Stonestreet Monument Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points and 'Editors' Choice,' Wine Enthusiast: Dark in color and full-bodied, this bone dry Cabernet is tannic and hard, despite having concentrated flavors of blackberry jam and black currant. It has plenty of structural integrity, and feels elegant in the mouth. Try holding it for a few years. If you drink it now, give it a few hours in the decanter. Alcohol 15.3%. (Jul 2012)

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

Good dark red. Currant, graphite and loam on the nose and palate, plus a whiff of chocolate. Supple, sweet and ripe, with harmonious acidity and suave, sweet tannins giving the wine considerable early appeal. A pinch of herbs perks up the wine’s finish.

From high elevation vineyards in Alexander Valley, Stonestreet 2009 Monument Ridge Cabernet has really gorgeous red fruit aromatics with firm tannins and enough acid to make us crave a steak.
