    (Ridge Vineyards Monte Bello Cabernet Sauvignon) A barrel sample. A massive presence of pure, concentrated, roasted cherry fruit, with lots of fruit complexity. The same character is found on the palate, which is brimming with youthful fruit. There is a good tannic structure. This is only a baby, but it has great potential.
