Monte Bello Chardonnay 2014

Hmm. Lots of oak, buttery, lots of vanilla, moderate volume and a sweetness on the finish. Sub acid.

Starting to get going a week in… definitely gaining volume and complexity.

@Ron R had to snatch this when I found it in a local shop for less than $100, but I actually much prefer the recent vintages of the estate chardonnay.

You’re a lucky many, @Josh Morgenthau. This is a wine that’s akin to rocking horse shit!

Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2010


Blueberry compote, herbs, graphite, hint of pines, leather, sweet tobacco. Full, deep and lively with velvety tannins and beautiful lift at the end. Great stuff. — 2 months ago

40th Anniversary Vintage Monte Bello Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2007

Rookie mistake to drink this beauty right after the SQN…but the error of a hedonist, to be sure. This was devoured before it could warm up from cellar but just wow. Iconic. Luscious. — 2 months ago

Light straw gold. Young color, young nose. Bright and fruity. Has some depth that will pay off with aging. Brought by a friend to dinner. — 4 months ago

Paso Robles Zinfandel 2018

History begins in 1885, when Osea Perrone, a doctor in San Francisco's Italian community, bought 180 acres near the top of Monte Bello Ridge in the Santa Cruz Mountains. This is 100% Zin! Dark Ruby with aromas of berry fruits, floral and spice! On the palate flavors of blackberry and cherry with peppery floral herb spice integrated with fine soft tannins, lively acidity. Medium+ finish ending with juicy fruit and spice. Nice! — 3 months ago
