Stonestreet 'Monument Ridge' Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
Not Vintage Specific
Wine Enthusiast 96
"A dramatic wine, authoritative in tannins, bone dry and noble. Withholds its best under a cloak of astringency, but already shows its mountain terroir in the complexity of its structure and deep, intense blackberry, currant, blueberry and dried herb flavors. Should develop bottle complexities for at least a decade and probably longer." -SH

"The biggest production cuvee, the inky/purple-tinged 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Monument Ridge is fabulous. Composed of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Cabernet Franc aged 16 months in 76% new French oak casks, it reveals abundant aromas of creme de cassis, graphite, ink, licorice, and fruitcake in a full-bodied, Pauillac-like style with plenty of sweet tannin."
Still Rustic - This wine will remind you of a left bank Bordeaux. But it is still a bit rustic and the tannins are still quite grippy. Needs several more years.

a best keep secret - This is one of those find of the century, a great CAB, priced for the mass and those who know already have it in the cellar
