Ridge Central Coast Monte Bello Cabernet Sauvignon 1992

Winemaker's Notes:

"When I tasted this wine early in its life I felt it had outstanding potential. With another year of cellaring it has gained considerable weight. *It now looks to be one of the greatest examples of Monte Bello Cabernet Sauvignon Ridge has produced*. [75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot, and 4% Cabernet Franc.] The wine offers a black/purple color, a profound nose of minerals, cassis, licorice, and spices, spectacular richness, and a great mid-palate that boasts layers of fruit. Admirable purity, fine underlying acidity, and considerable sweet, ripe tannin make this another compelling effort._*Very rare; only a few magnums available. *_

Succeeds in a subtle, supple style; the earthy currant, anise and mushroomy flavors are well-structured, with firm tannins and cedary oak. Still tight and youtful, with room to grow.--'92 California Cabernet retrospective. Drink now through 2010. 3,9... Wine Spectator.
