  • Product Description

    Opaque ruby color. Intense blackberry fruit aromas, blackcurrant, exotic barrel spice, toasted oak, licorice, and complex forest notes. Rich mountain fruit entry, refreshing high acid, full chalky tannin structure, and sweet oak; strong mineral finish.
    75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot.

    98: James Suckling
    Unique aromas of blackberry, black currant, dark chocolate and walnut. Full body, very powerful and tannic. Incredible depth and power. Precise and so focused. Muscular. Great structure. This needs at least six to eight years to come together.

     

    97: Decanter
    Another superb Monte Bello, the 2014 reveals an exuberant bouquet of crushed wild berries, plum, cherry, cinnamon, menthol and woodsmoke, framed by nicely integrated new oak. On the palate the wine is deep and intense, structured around rich tannins and underpinned by vibrant acidity, with terrific persistence on the finish. This has a long life ahead of it. Drinking Window 2022 - 2050

    96: Vinous
    The 2014 Monte Bello is going to need at least a decade to show everything it has. Deceptively medium in body and super-classic in its mid-weight structure, the 2014 offers notable brightness and intensity in an understated style, even by Ridge standards. Today, the 2014 is intensely linear, focused and vibrant. Petit Verdot is the variety that suffered most in the drought, so its presence in the blend is minimal.

    96: Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
    Always one of California's most majestic and beautiful proprietary red wine blends, Ridge Vineyards has yet again produced one of the vintage's top wines. The 2014— made from mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, with Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot—shows exceptional balance and structure. The wine's blackcurrants, earth, and chalk are coupled well with fine acidity. (Tasted: October 30, 2017, San Francisco, CA)
