Ridge Vineyards Monte Bello is a world-renowned Cabernet Sauvignon blend that has been produced in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California for over 60 years. This wine is a true reflection of its terroir, displaying a complex character thanks to the unique microclimate and soil composition of the vineyard. The wine is aged in American oak barrels, which imparts a subtle vanilla and spice flavor to the wine. The result is a full-bodied wine with notes of black fruit, cassis, and a hint of chocolate, with an elegant and long-lasting finish. Monte Bello is a collector's wine that has consistently ranked highly among the world's top Cabernet Sauvignons, earning it a well-deserved reputation as one of California's premier wines.
Complex aromas of blackberry, tobacco, roasted coffee bean and wintergreen. On the palate, concentrated plum layered with well-coated tannins, firm acidity, oak spice and notes of licorice on the long finish.
