Ridge Geyserville Proprietary 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Sweet oak complements opulent, dark cassis/loganberry fruit. Cocoa/chocolate notes. Dense and exotic, with integrated tannins, long finish.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

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.

A candidate for one of the longest-lived Cabernet Sauvignon-based wines in California is Ridge s Monte Bello. The 2001 Monte Bello Proprietary Red is this historic vineyard s 40th anniversary cuvee. It boasts a saturated purple color in addition to a luxurious perfume of smoky oak plums cedarwood espresso black cherries and cassis. As the wine sits in the glass a hint of tar also emerges. This full-bodied broad expansively flavored offering exhibits high tannin along with a huge finish. In blind tastings I consistently mistake these cuvees for French Bordeaux and also underestimate their age since they last for 30+ years. Over 90% of this offering is aged in new American oak yet it never displays that sappy American oak character thanks to the superb cooperage of the barrels. This top-notch 2001 Monte Bello should be at its best between 2012-2035. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
