    February 23, 2019 - Dark, inky, long legs. The perfume of oak andd cedar come through. The dark fruits are there. Really nice, fuller in the mouth than most cabs.

    August 29, 2018 - Popped and did a fast 1-pass decant.

    This is a dark red/black color with a pretty big dark fruit and cherry aroma. Taste follows the aroma nicely with black fruit and minerals, somewhat heavy in oak, with med-low acidity and smooth tannins. All in all, this is powerful, but still very smooth and balanced and even though it’s 15.2%, there’s no heat at all. I really do like wines from Monte Russo.

    I’d give it 90/91 Points and a Very Good QPR. Not sure this is the “95” that Steve Heimoff gave it, I’m much more in the 90 Point camp of Wine Enthusiast. And while this is probably the most expensive Cameron Hughes I’ve ever bought (I like to get them from Costco with the substantial savings), this is also probably the highest score I've given a CH Cabernet.

    July 29, 2017 - This wine is dark and concetrated. Decanted and poured over the next 2 hours. Fruit is compact and tight. Deep cassis and blackberrys, oak and cedar. Wait 2+ years to try. The last monte rosso from cam.

    September 18, 2016 - PnP with friends as a 1st bottle test. Beautiful dark elixir in glass and extremely tight at first. Needed about 2 hours to start opening up. Hints of florals and cigar box. Bright red fruit tones, nice balanced acidity and tanins on the palate. This one will need a few more years (maybe 5) to come into it's own... let it rest or allow for a long decant if you must have now.
