RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Beautiful perfume of red berry. Aromas of currant, raspberry, strawberry and cherry with licorice hints. Luscious ripe red berry fruit on the palate. This wine is peaking now in my opinion. Ripe red currant and cherry flavors. Really beautiful fruit. Great acidity and tannin still, but is driven by pretty fruit tones. Very fragrant. Drink now! 92 pts. 5/18/13
External Reviews for Monte Xanic Chardonnay Blend Calixa
94 Points "The 2002 Monte Bello exhibits aromas of tar, cedar, damp earth, white chocolate, black cherries, and sweet black currants. This full-bodied, dense, tannic 2002 is even more closed this year than it was last." Wine Advocate, #162 Dec 2005, Robert Parker
The 2002 Monte Bello Proprietary Red Wine (74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, and 8% Petit Verdot) exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color in addition to extremely ripe aromas of black currants, white flowers, chocolate, and smoky, toasty oak. I am not... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2002 Ridge Monte Bello 750ml
Some Merlot added to the Cabernet creates a jammy, soft nose and a round, easy mouthfeel. The fruit is pure throughout, with tasty cassis and plum lifted by light tannins. With chocolate and spice on the finish, this is a fine Cabernet for the price.
Deep ruby in color, this Cab is ripe with fruit and spices, supported nicely by cedar shadings and firm tannins that give it plenty of backbone.
