2008 Monthaven Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Central Coast

Maybe I shouldn’t have been BBQing while writing the tasting notes on this wine  :-)   OK, closed my balcony door and brought the glass into the hallway!   I get black cherry as the primary fruit in the wine, with some darker fruit (currant) notes as well.   I also smell a faint hint of smoky bell pepper and pine.   Very juicy midpalate and finish.   There’s nice fruit on this that really pops out – mostly cherry, with some cranberry as well.   This is a cabernet that can definitely be consumed on its own, unlike most cabs that need to be paired with food.   This cabernet is soft, and smooth on the finish.   Perfect to serve at a holiday party!   :-)
