86 points "58% Cab. Sauv; 42% Merlot. Not to be confused with or mistaken for Ridge.s flagship Montebello Cabernet, this blend of varietals is a straightforward, medium-full-bodied wine that delivers a modest measure of mildly juicy, cherry and blackcurrant fruit. It picks up a touch of weediness in taste and narrows as it crosses the palate, but it could fill out a bit with a few years of age." Best 2009-2021
