Tasting Notes

The 1990 Monte Bello is drinking beautifully, and while it can't match the drama of the 1991 or the concentration of the 1992, it's a superb vintage that's long on complexity and character. The wine exhibits complex aromas of cassis, plums, cigar box, wood smoke and subtle grilled meat, framed by savory bass notes of rich soil. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, complete and layered, with rich, fine-grained structuring tannins and firm balancing acids. Exquisitely balanced, the 1992 is less marked by new oak than the 1991, perhaps because it spent a shorter time in barrel. The product of a long, even growing season and an October harvest, it's a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot.

Provenance

The collector from Cambridge ON was interested in the wine industry from a very young age. He was part of many wines clubs since 1980th and attended professional tastings looking for the best wines. The main focus of the collection has always been and still is a Bordeaux region. Most wines were purchased from release in LCBO. The main reason for selling is that the collection got too big and needs to be brought to a more manageable level. The collection has always been stored in a temperature controlled cellar.
