1985 Ridge Monte Bello Cabernet - 750ml

In Stock Unavailable
1985 Ridge Monte Bello Cabernet Along with the Dunn Howell Mountain and Chateau Montelena 1985s Ridge's Monte Bello is among the most backward wines of the vintage but it is so promising. I do not intend to touch another bottle before 2005 - it is still that youthful and closed. It offers a good education in what great young wine is all about. The beautiful ruby/purple color exhibits no signs of age. The sweet nose of cassis fruit lead pencil flowers and minerals is followed by a full-bodied opulent wine with a boatload of tannin. This huge massive yet well-delineated and focused wine should prove to be uncommonly long-lived. RP
