Multidimensional intensely spicy nose combines black plum black cherry black raspberry chocolate mint coffee and cedar. Fat thick dense and impressively deep; penetrating vinosity gives the currently austere black cherry and menthol flavors superb clarity. Powerfully structured and extremely unevolved. Finishes with superb persistence and toothcoating tannins that spread out over the palate. Will be a great Monte Bello.

It almost defies inspection given its austere extremely tannic hard style. The opaque purple color is accompanied by a wine that smells and tastes ripe rich and brilliantly made but it will require a minimum of 10-12 years of cellaring to shed enough tannin to become civilized. Although it should be a winner it may not be as sure a bet as such vintages as 1991 1992 and 1995. When young this wine rarely reveals its full potential. Having said that the last three vintages of the Monte Bello Cabernet Sauvignon (1993 1994 and 1995) are immensely impressive with perhaps the 1994 the least expansive - for now.
