2012 Ridge Vineyards Monte Bello

Decanted at 15.30, returned to the original bottle at 17.30, drunk at 20.00: such an exquisite perfume! Perfect balance on the palate with the perfumed fruit dancing over the fine-grained tannin. So young, but so beautiful. Warm, floral - astonishing! 96/100. Drunk 03-Jun-21. Decanted 4½ hours.
