"Dark, with a tight focus on the ripe blackberry and black cherry-'scented fruit. Concentrated and complex, not a classic, but very well-done for the vintage, offering depth and length. Finishes with a tart edge. Drink now through 2007." Best 2002-2007

"The 1998 Monte Bello Proprietary Red (a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, and 1% Cabernet Franc) exhibits a ripe nose of sweet oak intermixed with blackberries and cassis. It is firm and medium-bodied, with astringent tannin in the finish."
