Monroy Wines is a fresh face to the small-batch scene. Combining techniques learned from top Napa Valley cabernet houses and Russian River pinot noir estates, Monroy Wines creates classically-styled cabernet sauvignon of elegance, subtlety, and finesse.
2018 Cabernet Sauvignon, Chalk Hill, Sonoma County
Intensely perfumed and aromatic, filling the glass with lavender, cedar, florals, and savory herbs over notes of sweet blueberries and blackberries, all lightly lifted by hints of fresh cream and vanilla spice. Acid-driven and tense in the mouth, gently giving away to a core of fruit sweetness with firm yet fine tannin structure. The finish remains energetic and exceptionally long with a graceful fade. Fermented entirely in closed-head French oak, and then drained and aged for 20 months in 60% new wood.
