“All four major Bordeaux varietals grown on Monte Bello’s forty-five parcels ripened perfectly and made excellent wines. Cabernet Sauvignon required lengthier fermentation time to fully extract (nine-to-twelve days.) Merlot and petit verdot reached full extraction in just six days, while cabernet franc required seven days.” ~ Eric Baugher (12/16)
