Deep ruby. Fragrant nose of raspberry, strawberry, some vanilla and a hint of earthiness. In mouth this is full of energy with notes of cherry, strawberry and tobacco. Still very much an adolescent but already showing great poise. Tannins are slightly furry and acidity is prominent but you can already see them beginning to mesh. Falls away slightly at the finish. Monte Bello in any vintage is just a great wine. 50+9+8+18+8=93+

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
