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.


Winemaker's Notes:

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