Monthaven Winery Cabernet Sauvignon (3 Liter Octavin Home Wine Bar) 2008
from Central Coast, California
Monthaven Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted from select vineyards throughout California's diverse Central Coast, with a focus on fruit from Paso Robles and Monterey. The heat of Paso Robles delivers ripe fruit with depth, which is then balanced by the cooler-climate Monterey grapes that deliver a unique complexity to the wine. Monthaven fruit is fermented colder than average - with a long, cold soak at 50 degrees,
starting fermentation at 65 degrees and ending before the wine hits 75 degrees - to create a juicy wine with well-managed tannins. This full-bodied garnet wine exhibits aromas of dark cherry and mocha and dark fruit flavors. Given that the majority of the wine is aged in barrels for at least six months, the wine finishes in a characteristically Cabernet style, with firm but still accessible tannins and a long, lingering finish.
