The 2008 Monte Bello is striking. It is a decidedly muscular Monte Bello endowed with layers of dark fruit. Tobacco, mint, asphalt and crushed rocks develop in the glass, adding tons of complexity and finesse. A long, saline finish rounds things out ... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Winemaker's Notes:

"*The 2008 Monte Bello is striking*. It is a decidedly muscular Monte Bello endowed with layers of dark fruit. Tobacco, mint, asphalt and crushed rocks develop in the glass, adding tons of complexity and finesse. A long, saline finish rounds things out beautifully. In 2008 the cold growing season stretched into October and the wine definitely has the feel of a cool vintage. The spring frost and the second year of drought conditions lowered yields significantly. The balance of fruit, tannin and structure is simply extraordinary, but the wine needs time. [72% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Merlot.]Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
