2014 Monte Bello, Ridge Vineyards, Santa Cruz Mountains
The nascent Monte Bello blend was recently tasted against the five most recent vintages as a form of quality control. Owner Paul Draper and winemaker Eric Baugher write, “this very young wine showed such elegance, and yet had a wonderfully defined structure for long-term aging.” One of California’s, if not the world’s, wine legends, 2014 looks as if it is going to be another outstanding vintage for Ridge.
