Ridge Vineyards

Estate Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2001

M & I’s contribution for OTBN was the 2009 Ridge Monte Bello. I love everything Ridge, and this was my first time trying the Monte Bello. A true classic. This wine was more earth and rustic than the Staglin. Winemaker notes best describe this wine as deep ruby/purple; blackberry, red current, ripe cassis, cedar, crushed rock minerality, toasted oak; Full-body, rich tannin structure, dark berry fruit, firm acid, wet-stone, juniper, forest floor, cola, and lingering exotic oak spice finish. — a year ago

Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 1997

Opened for a buddy’s birthday party. What a lovely surprise. Cork was a struggle, but hardly any seepage at all. On a table with a ridiculous amount of bottles, including standouts like ‘95 Opus, ‘85 Freemark Bosche, ‘74 Sterling Merlot, ‘13 Salon.

Pop and poured. Excellent youthful color! Deep ruby, hardly any bricking. Gorgeous aromatics of red and black berries, vanilla pipe tobacco, sweet spices. On the palate, it is wonderfully integrated and layered with stewed red and black fruits, fig, espresso, dusty coco (maybe fading signature Rutherford dust?), and a small bit of tannin at the finish keeping this buttoned-up and well structured. Excellent finish and balance. Held strong all evening. Seems as though this had a toe in the early ‘90s style of more bright Napa cabs and one toe in the late ‘90s/early ‘00s style of starting to increase ripeness…great marriage of the two. Pop and enjoy!

Rivers-Marie

Bearwallow Vineyard Chardonnay 2021

First time with Rivers Marie. And very satisfied. Classic CA style with vanilla and ripe fruit, but not over the top. Easy drinking. Still slight preference for Mayacamas, Mt Eden, or Hirsch. Or Staglin :-) — 4 months ago

@David T A very fun night/weekend with great wines. But, more importantly, a terrific annual event to help raise money for Alzheimer research.

Twice as nice when you can enjoy such wines while simultaneously raising money to fight a horrific condition.
