November 2020 Issue
Nearly 725 wines were reviewed for Wine Spectator’s cover feature on the Top Cabernets from the 2017 vintage. Our 2017 Monte Bello graced the cover of the magazine’s November 2020 issue and earned a spot among the highest ranked cabernets of the year.
The article’s author and Wine Spectator senior editor, James Molesworth, had the following to say about the 2017 Monte Bello:
Release Price: $230
Region: Central Coast
Distinctive, with vibrant violet, juniper and anise notes out front, backed by a core of intense dark current, plum and cherry fruit. Firmly grounded, showing serious cut and drive through the bay leaf – and sage-accented finish which sports ample toast alongside the fruit and floral elements. A chiseled, ripped Cabernet for the cellar. Best from 2023 through 2040. -James Molesworth
