1997 Ridge Monte Bello

Community Tasting Note


95 Points

Tuesday, March 10, 2009 - Definetly a Bordeaux blend and a delicious example of one , one hour in a decanter & it improved all night consumed w/ a Shafer HSS 1999 and it was elegance vs size & power . The Monte Bello was Barbie all curves and sexy but in a beautiful natural way , the Shafer was GI Joe ,all American , muscular and equally attractive in it's own genre .
The Monte Bello evolved beautifully over the evening and the last hour we were just smelling the empty glass discussing what was there . A great bottle of wine in a very nice place right now
