Missing California? Nothing can help you better than a bottle of Montebello and ribeye. We were feeling second-home-sick last night so we decided to dig this guy out of our west coast cellar. Monte Bello has often been called America’s First Growth, as it is the finest US example of a classic Bordeaux blend in which cabernet sauvignon predominates. The wine is amazing right now, lots of graphite and licorice 👌🏻so if you own one of these I’d say this is the perfect time to drink it. It will evolve a little longer but it’s at the right spot, at least for my palate.
Have you had any California Cab recently?
Name a few, we’d love to try them!
