Description:

Ridge Monte Bello 1981
Santa Cruz
u: very top shoulder, lightly bin-soiled labels
"Absolutely spectacular, the 1991 Monte Bello comes from a low tannin year where the estate was wondering how well the wine would age. I'm happy to report it has aged brilliantly! Fully mature, yet still youthful and lively, it offers tons of cassis, underbrush, spice and dried herbs to go with a full-bodied, utterly seamless, sexy feel on the palate that just keeps you coming back to the glass. Given the balance, it will hold nicely going forward, but there's no upside to further cellaring." J. Dunnuck for TWA, 97 pts. 10/15
2 bottles
Estimate $150-250
