    Description

    Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon 1996
    Monte Bello
    1ll
    Bottle (11)

    A fantastic collection from a Michigan based wine lover who spent the last 25 plus years collecting every vintage of Ridge Monte Bello. All of these wines are in solid 12-pack cases and have been impeccably stored since their release. A privilege to offer this phenomenal collection of arguably the greatest wine in America.

    "A blockbuster, powerful, concentrated Monte Bello, it possesses an opaque purple color, plenty of spicy oak in the nose (100% American oak has always been used for aging Monte Bello), and a deep, layered, concentrated style. There is plenty of tannin, but it is sweeter than that found in the 1997, and the wine is more concentrated and extracted. There is a touch of oak in the flavors, which are otherwise dominated by minerals and jammy black fruits. This is a terrific Monte Bello that will have 30+ years of life." (95 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #120, Dec. 1998)


    Estimate: $1,900 - $2,600.
