Ridge Monte Bello Cabernet Sauvignon 1 Six Lot 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

These vines grow in decomposed volcanic rock that is mineral-rich. well drained and porous. encouraging the 20- to 40- year-old vines to dig deep in search of water. We pick grapes at optimum ripeness and make a wine that is elegant and rich with intense flavors and good acidity.

August Briggs Winery is a family-owned winery in Napa Valley dedicated to producing very limited quantities of great wines from carefully selected vineyards across California’s North Coast counties. Owner Joe Briggs brings a quarter-century of winemaking knowledge in working with quality grape growers to produce our signature style of balanced wines with intense fruit character. Joe and his wife Sally welcome you to their winery home in Calistoga. August Briggs currently produces 16 different wines. Joe explains, "I let the grape supply dictate the wines I make now and in the future as well, so I'll be able to deliver different and interesting wines to my customers. One of my main focuses is to have fun with the wine. We probably won't ever be known for one particular wine, but rather making great wine in general." Come visit us at 333 Silverado Trail, on the south end of town, for a friendly greeting and some of the best single-vineyard and appellation-designated wine! Read less

Full ruby-red. Knockout nose offers blackberry currant plum cedar minerals and dark chocolate. Fresh succulent and quite firm in the mouth with brisk acids and a minty nuance lifting the dark berry and chocolate flavors. Finishes with chewy tannins that come across as a bit less harmonious than those of the young 2004. But this youthfully closed wine grew sweeter with aeration. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

The 2003 Monte Bello goes from strength to strength. A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, and 7% Petit Verdot, it exhibits a dense opaque purple color as well as a big, sweet nose of creme de cassis, blackberries, and subtle smoke and new oa...
