COMMENTARY: The 2017 Moniker Cabernet Sauvignon does an excellent job of balancing all of its elements into delicious and smooth wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine deftly combines sleek black fruit with accents of oak. Pair it with grilled beef. (Tasted: April 17, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Attractive in an actively oaky way, this complex wine lavishes cedar, mint, toast and vanilla aromas over tight red- and black-cherry and raspberry flavors. It feels very firm in texture, and will shine in pairings with rich, filling foods.

Moniker  Winery Image

In the late 1990s, the Thornhill family's dream was to bring their far-flung family together in one beautiful place we could call home. After years of searching, the family decided Mendocino County, California was that special place, and in 2002 they moved to La Ribera, a benchland vineyard in the heart of the Ukiah Valley.

La Ribera is a 1.5-mile long property situated on the eastern banks of the Russian River in the southern Ukiah Valley. One hundred and fifty acres are planted in vines, with the original plantings dating to the early 1950s. The river and its abundant riparian zone exert a cooling influence that tempers summer heat and helps retain acidity and freshness in the grapes.

Attention to the needs of each vine results in more concentrated and expressive fruit, and La Ribera’s diversity of soil types allows us to precisely match an array of varietals—Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Syrah—with their ideal soil profile. The result is high-quality wines boasting intense varietal character.

Through the wines, winemaker Greg Winter and the Thornhill family have worked to display the ultimate expression of their devotion to Mendocino County's breathtaking beauty, rich wine culture and friendly, hard-working people. They represent the best of their family and the singular appeal of one of the world's finest and most distinctive winegrowing regions.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
