Monte Rosso Vineyard Zinfandel 1994

Cranberry, cassis, persistent tannin. No bricking, no fading at the rim. If anything, this tastes austere. How is this 24 yrs old?! — 6 days ago

I. Brand & Family

Monte Bello Road Cabernet Sauvignon

Made from vines adjacent to Ridge’s iconic Monte Bello property, Ian Brand crafts an excellent Cabernet of structure and length. Bright acidity and a dusty and persistent tannic grip. Smoke, raspberry, dust, high toned and salty. — 13 days ago

Seghesio Family Vineyards

Monte Rosso Zinfandel 2013

A Gym Zin. Lots of muscle and sinew, little fat. Nose has deeply gravelly notes over dark blackberry and a hint of dark maple syrup. Deep flavors show off loads of minerals and clingy dark berry extract. Big, lengthy, and balanced. Really fine. — 14 days ago

Monte dos Cabaços Colheita Seleccionada 2009

A rich, full-bodied wine. It welcomes you with the deepest, darkest purple you have ever seen, almost black in color. Then, the aroma invistes you with dark blackberry, mulberry and a violet scent to a dense, firm mouthful of fruit along with fine tannins. It almost reminds you of a young Bordeaux. But then, no, as it’s spicy black pepper tingle and more violets and exotic notes come out. What would absolutely stun you is to find out was there is no oak used on this wine. The tannins are silky with time, but, make no mistake, this is a BIG wine. Often, that is achieved with oak. But here, it is just a reflection of the grapes and the touch nature of Alentejo! Unbelievable! — 15 days ago

Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1997

One of the better bottles I’ve had in a while. This is drinking very well right now, though it definitely changed quite a lot over the course of the night - would suggest a couple hour decant. Dusty but integrated tannins, insanely precise fruit, great tension and balance, and a distinct almost menthol quality on the finish. Really an excellent wine. — 4 days ago

Ridge Vineyards

Monte Bello Estate Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

History begins in 1885, when Osea Perrone, a doctor in San Fran’s Italian community, bought 180 acres near the top of Monte Bello Ridge in the Santa Cruz Mountains, planting vineyards and built a winery, 1892 was the first vintage. Straw with ripe fruit nose, fresh and clean. Flavors of apple, apricot and melon with citrus notes and smoky oak. Lingering finish ending with a bit more oak than fruit at start of bottle but calmed down with the last glass. — 17 days ago
