The 2000 Monte Bello Proprietary Red (75% Cabernet Sauvignon 23% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc) is a surprisingly forward example of a Ridge Monte Bello. Its dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by sweet toasty oak along with creme de cassis licorice and resin-like aromas. Medium to full-bodied nicely textured and elegant with soft tannin as well as a forward style (surprising in view of winemaker Paul Draper's typical style) I would not be surprised to see it firm up considerably in the bottle and last for 12-13 years. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2016.
