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.

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 tan... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Full ruby-red. Knockout nose offers blackberry currant plum cedar minerals and dark chocolate.

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.

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...
