Lobenberg über:Monte Bello 2013


Lobenberg: Einer der bekanntesten und besten Winemaker der Welt, der Winzer, Önologe und Universitätslehrer John Kongsgaard, sagt über 2013 in Napa: 2013 is an unqualified success. The yields were appropriate and the quality is spectacular. The Chardonnays have great energy and depth of flavor, and the Cabernet and Syrah are rich, dense, and the tannins are beautiful. We cannot imagine more perfect weather. The harvest was early because the spring warmth was early and then the summer was very mild – never too hot and never too cold.


Suckling über:Monte Bello 2013


-- Suckling: --Suckling: Amazing aromas of flowers, blackberry, black currant and spices. Purple fruits. Full body, very dense and rich. Yet it has the Monte Bello agile energy and verve. Tannic and so fresh. The Monte Bello magic is here. Great to taste but it needs five or six years to come together. Be patient. Try in 2023. An ageless wine for forever. 100/100


Parker über:Monte Bello 2013


-- Parker: Showing even better than last year, the 2013 Monte Bello is a tour de force, and a step up over the 2012. Full-bodied, layered, beautifully concentrated and seamless, it knocks it out of the park with its classic bouquet of plums, vanilla bean, cedary spice, scorched earth and cigar. Made from 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, 7% Cabernet Franc and the rest Merlot, aged in 98% new American oak (there’s 2% new French oak), I wish I had bottles in the cellar. It should be at its best from 2023-2043. 97/100


Galloni über:Monte Bello 2013


-- Galloni: The 2013 Monte Bello is super-ripe, exotic and flashy. Dark blue and purplish stone fruits, sweet spices and licorice meld together as the 2013 opens up in the glass. There is plenty of supporting acidity and tannin, but the 2013 is likely to always remain flamboyant within the framework of Monte Bello. In 2013 the inversion layer moved around quite a bit, which resulted in warmer days and cooler nights than is the norm at Ridge, where diurnal shifts typically occur within a narrower range. The drought conditions and a blast of late season heat yielded tiny berries, a small crop and an unusually dark, concentrated Monte Bello that is going to require considerable patience. This is another Cabernet Sauvignon-heavy year, with less Merlot than is often the case. Ridge fans can look forward to Monte Bello Old Vines and Monte Bello Steep Terraces Cabernets that had not yet been bottled when I stopped by the winery this past June. Tasted from barrel, those two limited production wines are both shaping up to be magnificent. 96+/100

Mein Winzer


Gut eineinhalb Stunden südlich von San Francisco liegt das legendäre Weingut Ridge in den Santa Cruz Mountains, auf dem Gipfel des Monte Bello. Die letzten 15 Kilometer führen über verschlungene Serpentinen durch Redwoods und Eichenwälder bis hinauf zum Weingut, das auf 700 Metern liegt und weitläufig das Silicon Valley überblickt. […]
