T-Vine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County Monte Rosso Vineyard 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

Harvest took place in the early morning hours until dawn in the cool fog during October and November at 27° brix. The berries were hand harvested in the morning in order to keep the fruit as cool as possible. The grapes were hand sorted to ensure only the best optimal fruit was utilized and then gravity fed to the fermentors. Prior to fermentation the grapes were cold soaked for up to five days allowing for retention of the grape’s varietal essence and minimize bitter tannin extraction in the wine producing concentrated, fresh and dark fruit flavors in the finished wine. For maximum extraction of color and flavor the must was in contact with the skins for an optimal 30 days at temperatures not exceeding 89°F; thus contributing to greater extraction of black, dark, violet colors that visually hint at the depth and flavor of the wine. Racking took place every 4-6 months and this wine underwent complete malolactic fermentation in barrels. 100% of the wine aged in French oak barrels for approximately 26 months. Varietal Content: 98% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petite Verdot Appellation: Sonoma Valley Titratable Acidity: 0.53g/100ml pH: 3.6 Alcohol Level: 15.4% Oak Aging: French oak barrels for an average of 26 months

Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

Well-proportioned if on a modest scale, with complex aromas of ripe plum, blackberry, black cherry and enticing flowers and herbs. Concentrated and vibrant, with fine balance and well-integrated tannins. Should age well over the next decade. Cabernet... Wine Spectator.

The 2000 Monte Bello Proprietary Red (75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, and 2% Cabernet Franc) is a surprisingly forward example of a Ridge Monte Bello. Its dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by sweet toasty oak along with creme de cassis, lico... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
