One of Californian's iconic Cabernet Sauvignon - Ridge Monte Bello!
We offer the best priced Ridge Monte Bello 2012 in Singapore. Market price is in excess of $320.
Monte Bello is first and foremost a wine of place! That place – high atop the Santa Cruz Mountains underlain by decomposing limestone and Franciscan rock – produces a wine unlike any other. This exceptional vineyard has very low-yielding vines (less than 35 hl/ha which is Grand Cru Burgundy standard!) which are capable of creating a wine of great significance, depth, complexity and aging potential!
Another fact: The Monte Bello vineyard is located only approx 25km from the Pacific Ocean, is part of the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA, California’s coolest cabernet producing area!! It is also about 400m to 800m in altitude which explains the cool micro-climate!

Monte Bello has often been called America’s First Growth, as it is the finest domestic example of a classic Bordeaux blend in which cabernet sauvignon predominates.
If you like Bordeaux blend, you must try this iconic Californian Cabernet Sauvignon blend. This will also make a perfect wine gift for a wine connoisseur friend! :)
