Ridge Monte Bello Cabernet Sauvignon 2004
from Santa Cruz Mountains, California
Blend: 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot,
8% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc
"A mix of elegance and power, with deep, dark, concentrated cherry cassis, spicebox and cedar notes. Chewy, rustic nuances of herb, eucalyptus, leather and sage flavors fill out on the finish."
Barrel Sample: 92-94 Points
"Ruby-red. Brooding aromas of cassis, blackberry, minerals, bitter chocolate, tobacco and fresh herbs. Fat, broad and sweet, with nicely integrated acidity and complex hints of leather, herbs, licorice, chocolate and minerals. This cheek-coating wine is a bit more filled in than the 2003 release. Finishes with superfine tannins and lovely subtle persistence."
