    Description

    Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
    Monte Bello
    Bottle (12)

    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.

    "The 2008 Monte Bello is striking. It is a decidedly muscular Monte Bello endowed with layers of dark fruit. Tobacco, mint, asphalt and crushed rocks develop in the glass, adding tons of complexity and finesse. A long, saline finish rounds things out beautifully. In 2008 the cold growing season stretched into October and the wine definitely has the feel of a cool vintage. The spring frost and the second year of drought conditions lowered yields significantly. Yields were just 1.25 tons per acre on average, but some of the older vineyards came in at less than 1 ton per acre. The balance of fruit, tannin and structure is simply extraordinary, but the wine needs time, most likely lots of it." (97+ pts. Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate #196, Aug. 2011)
