In this third drought year, light spring rains helped the vines through a hot, dry summer. Full flavor was reached in late August, and we harvested early. Barrel fermented in our cool underground cellar, the wines finished by June. Four lots showed classic Monte Bello character; they were assembled and returned to the oldest barrels for continued aging. This fresh, lively wine will be enjoyable over the next nine to twelve years.
