Ridge 2016 'Monte Bello' Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Santa Cruz Mts MAGNUM (1.5L)

* This is a rare MAGNUM (1.5L) bottle*

One of California's original Classic Cabernets!

98 Points Antionio Galloni (Vinous):"The 2016 Monte Bello is stunningly beautiful. Medium in body, gracious and understated, the 2016 is a Monte Bello that is built on total finesse. Red cherry jam, raspberry jam, menthol and rose petal all grace this exquisite, vivid Monte Bello. All the elements are simply in the right place. The 2016 is not an obvious Monte Bello, but it is supremely gorgeous. At times, the sensation of tannins is non-existent. The persistent, crystalline finish is one thing of beauty."

Judgment of Paris Winner:  On May 24, 2006, a 30 year re-enactment of the Judgment of Paris was organized, this time with simultaneous tastings in London and in Napa at Copia. Paralleling the 1976 event, nine expert tasters at each location judged the original red wines, now over thirty years old. The winning wine in both the US and UK was the Ridge Monte Bello 1971.
