Monte Rosso Vineyard boasts some of the oldest Cabernet blocks in California and this wine was handcrafted from the best of them. Reserved in its youth, this beauty is really starting to open up and strut its stuff now. Aromas of toasted coconut and cedar fall into decadent macerated berries, black cherries, and long, silky tannins. 93% Cabernet Sauvignon with 5% Cabernet Franc and a balancing kiss of 2% Malbec, this is unmistakable Monte Rosso and undeniably delicious.
This is a reserved and tight Monte Rosso with bark and currant character. Wet earth. Full-bodied, balanced and extremely long. Fantastic, subtle finish. Reminds me of old Louis Martini Mountain cabs. Drink after 2022.
