Ridge Vineyards

Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1991

Bright color, almost opaque. Big nose. Notes of black cherries, plums, walnuts, some menthol. Comes across as young in the mouth. Rich and voluptuous. Still young in its life. Amazing wine. — 19 days ago

Estate Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot Blend 2009

Wow. This is still very youthful by most standards. Berry pie, mild oak, floral, herbal note. Silky smooth tannin leads the way to rich dark fruit and spice/cracked pepper. Good lengthy finish too. Still bright and brooding at 10 years old. Better than anticipated. — 19 days ago

Monte Aribaldo Dolcetto d'Alba 2017

I enjoyed this. There was caramel on the initial taste. The Louis Latour Pinot was liked by all a little more. — 11 days ago

Riserva Il Falcone Castel del Monte Rosso 2013

Stewed plums but with an astringency and tannic punch that actually makes this quite satisfying and interesting. The food pairing options here are endless. While I picked this up after tasting it at a tasting station at the liquor store, I think I'll look for this again in the future. Dark and majestic! — 12 days ago
