RIDGE RED MONTE BELLO '16   

RIDGE PROPRIETARY RED "MONTE BELLO" MONTE BELLO WINEYARD SANTA CRUZ MOUNTAINS 2016

Vinous

98 Points

One of the highlights in this tasting, the 2016 Monte Bello has turned out just as beautifully as I hoped it would. Soaring aromatics, bright acids and mid-weight structure give the 2016 a super-classic feel. Clearly, the 2016 is very primary today, with plenty of bright red and purplish berry fruit. More than that, though, the 2016 pulses with energy and simply exceptional balance. Don't miss it! Drink 2026-2056. Antonio Galloni Oct 2019

96-98+ Points

The 2016 Monte Bello is stunning, bursting from the glass with aromas of crushed currants, plums, charcoal, sweet spices, black truffle and rich soil. On the palate, it's full-bodied, immensely deep and very concentrated, with an ample core of dark fruit that almost entirely conceals its rich chassis of tannin. The finish is long, tensile and chalky. Cellar it for a decade and follow it for another three. William Kelley 31st May 2018
