Estate Monte Bello Vineyard Chardonnay 2020

Touch of oak. Good bit of acidity. Little hot and alcoholic. Not bad. Lacking creaminess and some fruit that my favorite Cali Chardonnay has. — 2 days ago

Estate Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2019

Delectable Wine
9.2

The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate offers a hugely appealing mix of fruit richness married to the savory, structured style that is the Ridge signature. The 2019 is beautifully exotic, but natural without the volume of the Monte Bello. I imagine it will drink splendidly with minimal cellaring. Succulent red cherry, blood orange, mint, cinnamon and pomegranate. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, May 2022)

40th Anniversary Vintage Monte Bello Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2007

Rookie mistake to drink this beauty right after the SQN…but the error of a hedonist, to be sure. This was devoured before it could warm up from cellar but just wow. Iconic. Luscious. — 6 months ago

Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Dark yet bright ruby. Cherry and oak, a bit muted on the nose. Solid backbone. Love that Rutherford dust. First time trying Bello. Enjoyed it! — 5 months ago

Blueberry compote, herbs, graphite, hint of pines, leather, sweet tobacco. Full, deep and lively with velvety tannins and beautiful lift at the end. Great stuff. — 6 months ago
