Mt. Monster Cabernet 2010

Tasting Notes

Deep purple in colour. Aromas of lifted blackcurrant, blackberry and mint on the nose. Flavours of sweet berry fruit following through from the nose with mint notes. Rich texture with big velvety tannins.

Vintage Conditions

It started out full bore with the usual warm February weather. All our grape varieties started to ripen at the same time making it one of our most compact vintages to date. Vine-balance was carefully monitored, resulting in fruit that demonstrate the vibrancy and fruit-derived characters that we strive for in our wines.
