  • Goedhuis, June 2017

    The 2016 is a powerful and concentrated wine. At this early stage the rich toasted scent of oak dominates the nose, but the high calibre of the fruit is abundantly evident on the palate. The tannins supply a chunky grip to the wine; the palate has a luxurious volume and dark chocolate richness, with black liquorice spice. It has an immense presence, even at this young age, and should be a thing of beauty when it finally reaches bottle.

  • Wine Advocate, May 2018, Score: 96-98

    The 2016 Monte Bello is stunning, bursting from the glass with aromas of crushed currants, plums, charcoal, sweet spices, black truffle and rich soil. On the palate, it's full-bodied, immensely deep and very concentrated, with an ample core of dark fruit that almost entirely conceals its rich chassis of tannin. The finish is long, tensile and chalky. Eric Baugher observes that 2016 was a drought year but that the vines were less stressed than in 2015, thanks to Spring precipitation, and it wasn't necessary to irrigate. Summer saw wild temperature swings, and though it was below average in summation, some days were very warm. The final Monte Bello blend contains 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot and 6% Cabernet Franc, which represents a slight change from when I tasted it a year ago, though its profile remains very much the same. The 2016 checks in at 13.8% alcohol and pH 3.49. Cellar it for a decade and follow it for another three.
