Our 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is now for sale in the tasting room and on our website.
This red blend is made up of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc. These grapes are from our best batches and the wine has been aged for 16 months. It exhibits spiced plum, black cherry, licorice, allspice, cedar, burnt toffee, and orange peel on the nose. Weighty, with grippy tannin, spicy oak, and a prolonged finish. Enjoy now through 2020.
When it comes to food pairings for this full-bodied red wine, look for items high in fat. Maybe try our Cabernet Sauvignon with a charred gruyere burger, a mushroom pizza with tomato sauce or some marinated ribeye steak. This is even a great wine to have with your Thanksgiving dinner!
These are very exciting times at Monte Creek Ranch Winery. Now that our vineyard and cellar is more established, we are able to start producing our Reserve line. This wine line exhibits the best of the best when it comes to our grapes. This wine is only available to purchase at the winery.
