RIDGE

Monte Bello Cabernet Blend, Santa Cruz Mountains 1500ml 2011

California
Size: Large Format

Ridge Vineyards is the reference point for exceptional Zinfandel and Cabernet from California.

$2,800

Tasting Notes

Very very dense and deep in the glass, beautiful nose of cassis but also lifted floral notes, little lick of toasty oak, discreet. Extremely profound and complex. There is lovely blue fruit coolness about this, great concentration and length, hints of mocha and chocolate but in the finest Valrhona style. Possibly the best young Cab I have ever tasted. Tasted alongside La Mission Haut-Brion 2010 and for me Ridge had the edge!
