Ridge Monte Bello 1978

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Smoky and hugely aromatic on the nose with deep liquory red fruits, herb, earth, leather and hints of American oak all layered and well integrated. This remains luxurious in the mouth with rich wild berry and red cherry fruit. It’s a touch simple but powerful with a wonderful intensity and freshness. Firmly at peak and a wonderfully enjoyable bottle. 93pts

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
