Hint of blackberries and a very nice balance. Slighty sweet finish.

97 points - Wine & Spirits Magazine"...It tastes like an authentic California wine, with the flavor of mountain-grown fruit-tiny berries, very dark in color and not a lot of them. The tannins have the intensity of wild blueberries, a soft power that's friendly rather than austere. Its fresh, bright floral aspects combine seamlessly with the structure, pointing up the wine's youthful beauty. The moderate alcohol (13.4 percent) is just one more factor that predicts a long life ahead for this wine." (12/08)95 points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby. Explosively perfumed nose offers a profound bouquet of ripe cherry, blackcurrant, yellow rose, Asian spices and vanilla bean; you could use this for incense. Deep and sweet but remarkably precise, offering powerful dark berry and kirsch flavors supported by substantial, velvety tannins. The fruit plows through the finish with superb energy, depth and clarity, fully absorbing the tannins. A big but wonderfully balanced example of Monte Bello, and sure to reward extended cellaring." (Nov/Dec 07)93 points and 2 Stars - Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine"This bottling begins with deep and yet very mannerly aromas of cassis, pencil lead and violets and builds with complex, claret-like flavors that combine poise and richness. So finely fit as to be almost seamless, it has the balance and layering to invite a decade and more of cellaring." (December 2008)

There is a remarkable balance and refinement in this wine you don't typically find in other Central Coast Cabernet. Lovely fruit notes of boysenberry and maraschino cherry, fold into flavors of spice-box, cedar and mineral. Deep, velvety and long in the finish. Terrific stuff.

This wine is brimming with dark cherries and baking spice. Undertones of leather and Licorice are elegantly framed by sweet vanilla from the French oak barrel aging.

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2005 Brother Timothy Mont La Salle Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec and 5% Petit Verdot. This blend displays sweet black cherry, plum and cassis. The wine was aged for 18 months in French oak and is well integrated with subtle sandal wood and cedar box aromas. On the palate the wine starts with a soft entry of red raspberry and cherry. The mountain tannins are ripe and smooth that lead to a seamless but lingering finish. Enjoy this wine through 2018.
