94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Intense aromas of blackberry and cassis meet with smoked meats, strong oak and light herbs on the toasty, layered nose of this bottling, which includes 21% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot. Chipped wood flavors decorate the dark-fruit and roasted herb core of the palate. (MK) Inner quote mark (10/2021)

92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark A selection of the lots from Monte Bello that are more accessible as young wines, Ridge’s Estate Cabernet has supple black tannins in 2018, showing some earthy detail in their blueberry-skin flavors. There’s rich fatness to the texture, even as the tannins restrict the fruit from showing itself completely. This will need a few years in the cellar to open. (JG) Inner quote mark (12/2021)

91 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Lifted nose with a floral character, notes of herbs, iodine and lots of oak spice. Harmonious in the mouth, grippy and fresh. Inner quote mark (1/2022)
