"20% of the 2009 Jester 'Monarco' Cabernet Sauvignon undergoes the same passito (Amarone) process as the estate's 'Serpico' label of semi-drying grapes. It displays a very deep garnet-purple color with notes of warm red currant, blackcurrant and dried herbs plus a subtle whiff of earth and black truffles. Crisp, medium-full bodied with a medium-high level of grainy tannins, it gives a long somewhat chewy finish. Drink it now to 2016."

"A vivid, generous version, this delivers a tight mouthful of black currant, espresso, tomato and floral flavours that push against mild tannins through the long finish"
