Ridge Monte Bello 2012 Sonoma 150cl
From Sonoma County, Ridge is one of California's great iconic wineries, and Monte Bello their flagship wine. This single vineyard wine is a Meritage (Californian Bordeaux-style blend) comprised of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot, matured for sixteen months in oak (98.5% new American oak; 1.5% new French oak).
Large-format bottles are great for extended ageing periods due to the wine's slower rate of maturation. Indeed, this 1.5L "Magnum" is expected to mature well - if cellared correctly - for up to 50 years!
We can assure that this bottle has come from a wine-specific temperature-controlled storage environment.
Please note that a shipping charge for 2 bottles shall be applied to this lot.
This bottle is in excellent condition: label & foil/wax seal intact; cork/closure secure, no leakage.
We would recommend viewing/close inspection prior to placing any bids. If this is not an option and you have questions beyond the offered description and images, please contact us for a more in-depth condition report. Otherwise lots will be sold as seen in the images.
Please note: Due to the various ages of bottles and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion and no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit or otherwise spoilage of contents.
