Wine SpectatorPlush and dense, with a distinct racy edge for counterbalance, showing a massive core of dark plum and blackberry fruit, scored by bay leaf, sage and violet notes. A massive young wine that will cruise in the cellar. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.-Non-blind Ridge Monte Bello vertical (June 2019). Best from 2026 through 2046.
