JK'S NOTE OF THE DAY
The 1971 Ridge Monte Bello was the grand finale, and any one lucky enough to have a 1970 Monte Bello or 1971 Ridge Eisele Vineyard knows that Ridge is as good as any Cali Cab producer from this era. The 1971 had a firm, intense and deep nose and flirted with an oaky, woodsy, barky edge. There was an exotic touch of banana and some weirdness at first. The wine needed some time in the glass to overcome its weirdness and integrate into an alcoholic, spicy, long, fine and classic California Cabernet (94).
