2009 Monticello Vineyards "Tietjen Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2009 Tietjen Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is another classic. Dark red fruit, loads of sweet vanilla and mocha oak. The texture is very rich with a big and full mid-palate and the tannins frame the wine wonderfully. The finish is long and the tannins are smooth. The wine is powerfully elegant – a trait that we have found consistently in this wine since our first Vintage in 1989.
