Ridge Monte Bello 2018 shows an opaque, saturated ruby in colour. Fresh and lively on the nose with aromas of cassis, fennel, cola, spice and toasted oak. The palate is full of luscious ripe cassis, blackberry and bramble fruits, balanced with a lively acidity and polished, velvety tannins. The length lingers on the finish for minutes. A Magnum for a special occasion.

“…The 2018 Monte Bello is a wine of extraordinary finesse. Although it doesn’t have the body or overt richness of some recent vintages, it more than makes up for that with its total sense of harmony. Lavender, mocha, spice, liquorice and dried flowers all develop in a sublime, refined Monte Bello that will thrill Ridge lovers…” – 96+ Pts, Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media (September 2020)

“Very expressive, with warmed blueberry compote, menthol, sweet bay, steeped açaí and sassafras notes all in the mix, carried by brambly grip and a cold cast iron spice. Late echo of mesquite completes this remarkably complex and vivid offering. Should ne fun to watch this develop in the cellar. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2022 through 2042.” – 97 Pts, James Molesworth, Wine Spectator (August 2021)
