We have just received our allocation of Ridge Monte Bello for the 2012 Vintage and it looks like we have something really special to look forward to. For those of you who like plenty of detail we have attached the full harvest report; for the rest of you: suffice to say the weather pattern was pretty much perfect (Click to read the full harvest report)

The Assemblage process is currently underway for the 2012 Monte Bello! Here is what Winemaker Eric Baugher has to say thus far: "This highly successful vintage has given us some impressive wines for this year's Monte Bello. Color is saturated, tannins are rich and coated, and acidity firm as usual. 2012 is in the style of the 1997 and 2001 and will rival those great vintages in quality” (Click here to read the full Monte Bello 2012 blog post on Ridge's Website)
