Winemaker's Notes
"In neck fill. Wine stain across bottom of label. Excellent cork, capsule, and color of wine. The 1990 Monte Bello is drinking beautifully, and while it can't match the drama of the 1991 or the concentration of the 1992, it's a superb vintage that's long on complexity and character. The wine exhibits complex aromas of cassis, plums, cigar box, wood smoke and subtle grilled meat, framed by savory bass notes of rich soil. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, complete and layered, with rich, fine-grained structuring tannins and firm balancing acids. Exquisitely balanced, the 1992 is less marked by new oak than the 1991, perhaps because it spent a shorter time in barrel. The product of a long, even growing season and an October harvest, it's a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. 95 points, Wine Advocate, 2018. An immense wine of uncommon depth, richness, concentration and complexity. Beautifully structured, tightly focused, with layers of currant, tar, earth, anise, mineral and sage, finishing in long, lingering aftertaste.--California Cabernet retrospective. Drink now through 2020. 97 points, Wine Spectator."
