2003 Ridge Monte Bello

Community Tasting Note


91 Points

Sunday, March 29, 2009 - King Grape- california cabernets (cafe pyrennes, libertyville IL): nose: very tight nose with some tones of cedar, red cherries, red currants, and bits of herbs. This had been decanted for a while, but is obviously brutally young

taste: very polished with a very classy medium/full feel. Big tannins, but good tones of cedar, sour cranberries, red cherries, red currants and herbs

overall: extremely young. Not shut down, but very tight. There is a ton of promise in this wine, but this was definitely infanticide. It'd be interesting to see where this is in 2015
