Red Bordeaux Blend
3 x 75cl * 14% ABV * California, USA
The 2021 vintage was affected by droughts and forest fires so we are very lucky to have this rare allocation.
Ridge Vineyards is a famed Californian wine producer founded in 1962, and based in the Santa Cruz Mountains, but with vineyards in several parts of the state. Its flagship wine, Monte Bello, is a Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated Bordeaux blend known for delivering the complexity and elegance of Bordeaux wines, as well as typical California fruit intensity.
Deep and dark purple hues with aromas of red plum, black cherry, anise, sarsaparilla and earthy undertones. A pleasant entry with medium weight leads to a full structured mid-palate. Youthful tannins and bright acidity make for a long and juicy finish and show great aging potential.
Please note that prices are in-bond and exclude VAT and duty, which are payable when the wines land in September 2024.
