Took to Underbelly for dinner with friends. The waiter decanted about an hour prior to tasting. The wine was simply fantastic! I believe this wine will still be drinking well for quite some time. If I was scoring would be in the 92-94 range.

Still in pretty good shape, with a palate of dried red fruits, licorice and spice; Tannins are fully resolved and I imagine this won't improve with any more age, although is still holding up quite well

Delicious. Nice surprise for the members at the event at Monte Bello. Thought I was seeing things. A Ridge rosé? Make more this year please. Only two barrels produced. Two bottle limit. I would have bought both barrels if they let me.

Light red cherry color, medium legs. On the nose, cinnamon, caramel corn and earth. Palate is light fruit forward followed by warm spice notes. Round, full finish. Open to air for three hours. Good Blend.

What an amazing wine. We enjoyed this last night to celebrate the Supreme Court's marriage equality ruling and it is drinking beautifully right now. Decanted for an hour, it was a bit tight when we first tasted, but after decanting it opened beautifully. It still has plenty of time, but we only had one bottle and the time was right! We are going to get a couple more vintages to enjoy down the line.

A very clean and elegant wine with lemon zest and crushed rocks on the nose. The finish is smooth with toasted oak and spice. A solid effort.

Plum, vanilla, baking spices, and ever so slightly hot. Nicely balanced, if only barely. I'm surprised this is ridge... Not sure I'd guess that blind.
With air it came quickly into balance and the vanilla becamea background flavour. The fruit turned more bramble from the earlier plum. It's getting fresher with air, which is good. I wonder what will happen in another couple years.

I'll go with the crowd on this one. More claret-like than the Turley's and Carlisles I usually drink. But very smooth, mellow and balanced. Good weeknight drinking.

1998 Ridge Monte Bello

Compared to the 2006 Ridge Montebello for Harry's 41st. Unfortunately this bottle was on the downswing with greatly subdued blackberry fruit, a hint of apple cider oxidation notes, and all the black olive tapenade and tea leaves you could want. Here at 17 years I think bottle variation becomes more prevalent (see my 1/28/2015 note for an example of the range this wine displays). Still enough acidity and tannic structure to keep it drinkable and no wine went to waste; overall B- evaluation.

The 2006 was firing on all cylinders though, probably where this bottle was about 5 years ago.

1988 Ridge Monte Bello

6/25/2015 - coremill wrote: 91 points

An earthy, mineral expression of Monte Bello. Plenty of black cassisy fruit, but what jumps out are the powerfully dominant flavors of graphite and gravel, with plenty of mint as well. This could be from St Estephe. Still fruit in the midpalate with some silky tannins for grip. Not drying out yet, but there's no reason to wait any longer here. Excellent for a relatively unheralded vintage.

Gorgeous, almost syrah like in its olive and dark cigar character. But cassis. Silky. Just enough fruit to buffet the tertiary notes. Easily the best wine on the table.

Rhone Rangers WashDC June 18, 2015. For current drinking this was my WOTN (out of 30 plus sampled). I may have scored other wines higher but for sheer sensual delight, this was tops. A rush of red fruits, red currants, ripe raspberry, and fresh pomegranate juice, with a just-right background of clove and oak firming up the palate and bringing balance.

Reminded me of some of those super successful joven and crianza Spanish Riojas and Riberos but without the clumsy, syrupy thickness and alcohol that will soon throw everything out of balance. Fresh, aromatic and delicious from a grape with an unsung reputation.

Dark red/black at the rim - quite evolved nose of blackberries and dark fruits. Medium bodied, to a degree a currently closed palate, very ripe with slightly grainy tannins, this wine is in sore need of more cellar time.

Nice acid bite and lift - lighter than the Ridge Monte Bellos we tasted from the 1990s and 1980s, more grace and purity while showing less succulence and big obvious fruit. This is delicious wine and shows more complexity and depth than the typical Monte Bello.
