Estate Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2011

I know this wasn’t supposed to be a good vintage in CA, but it happens to be one of my favorites because it was so atypical. This bottle did not disappoint. The aroma just went on and on, the balance of acidity, tannins, and fruit was beautiful. After a quick comparison of all the spices in our pantry my wife and I decided the aroma held a combination of dried thyme, coriander, black raspberries and currants. As with many good bottles, my only regret is that I didn’t buy more. — 3 days ago

Ponzo Vineyard Zinfandel Blend 2016

A blend of 97% Zin and 3% Petite Sirah, dark Ruby with purple edges. Ridge's history begins in 1885, when Osea Perrone, a doctor and member of San Fran’s Italian community, bought 180 acres near the top of Monte Bello Ridge and planted vines. Aromas of rich dark fruits with herb spice notes. On the palate cherry and raspberry flavors with some vanilla oak and pepper spice. Firm yet soft tannins, medium finish, good mouthfeel ending with spicy fruit character. Nice! — a month ago

Estate Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot Blend 2008

Whelp....Probably opened too early, but hey, it’s Tuesday. On the nose some oiled leather, pencil lead, dark fruit. In the mouth, bigggg dark fruit, pencil shavings, rose hips. Strong mid-palate, solid acid, moderate tannins remaining. Long finish that goes on and on. Velvet glove - iron fist. Lovely. Needed a solid hour + to show well. — 22 days ago
