An overdue demise to a wine that never in its life rated above 80. Always tough-textured, austere, and charmless, at this advanced age it had lost any vestige of fruit or pleasure. This was declassified from the Monte Bello designation shortly after bottling when its low quality level was apparent. - WB team 2004-08-18
