Complex aromas of blackberry, tobacco, roasted coffee bean, and wintergreen. On the palate, concentrated plum layered with well-coated tannins, firm acidity, oak spice, and notes of licorice on the long finish. JO (1/22)
The 2019 Monte Bello is a wild, exotic wine. Huge, soaring aromatics meld into a core of heady, exotically ripe fruit. Not a shy wine by any means, the 2019 is atypically opulent, and yet all of the classic Monte Bello structure is there, underneath all of that fruit. The 2019 needs time in the bottle to shed its baby fat, but there is a lot to look forward to. I imagine it will always be a pretty exuberant wine. Inky red fruit, blood orange, espresso, sweet American oak, cedar, and pipe tobacco leave a lasting impression. In a word: magnificent!
