#7, RIDGE VINEYARDS SANTA CRUZ MOUNTAINS MONTE BELLO 2015
Rating: 100 points
Deep, strong, elegant wine, black currant and plum fresh wine with blueberry hay. The palate is rich in tannins, long lasting, fresh and pure. An amazing aftertaste. 77% of Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% of Merlot, 7% of Petite Sirah and 5% of Cabernet Franc, the beginning of a perfect journey.
