    The final assemblage of the 4 grapes (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot) that make up the blend is happening as we speak but the latest from the winery is that the Cabernet Sauvignon in 2011 is the stand out exceptional grape and could constitute 92% of the final blend, the first time that this has happened since the mid eighties. Although Merlot yields were low, it was a hard year for ripening. The Petit Verdot shows excellent aromatics, but may not be rich enough to include in the Monte Bello. The wine is opaque and structured. Based on the fine quality of the Cabernet lots, with rigorous selection, the 2011 Monte Bello should rival any past wine from this great site. An exceptional wine in the offing that displays huge structure, density and velvety tannins that will allow it to age for at least quarter of century. This is undoubtedly one of the greatest Cabernets produced anywhere in the world and one that has the potential to rival any of the great Bordeaux left bank 1st growths

Region

Sonoma

Sonoma Valley AVA is an appellation in California, USA. It is the oldest wine region north of San Francisco and is located on the western side of the Mayacamas Mountains, which separate it from the Napa Valley. The valley nearly touches the Russian river valley to the north-west and reaches the Sonoma portion of Carneros in the south. With steep mountains on either side there are great variations in climate and geology, which gives way to many different grape varieties and styles. The most notable varieties are Chardonnay and Zinfandel but also Cabernet and Merlot from hillside sites.
