Lovely Blog Review Of The 2006 Monte Bello, & The 1992 Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay!

Jerry Bullfrog’s Wine Stash. I love it! What a great name for a blog … And what a great idea for a blog! Here’s the tagline from the site:

A review of a different wine/beer/spirit everyday for a year, blended with commentary on random observations.

I love it!

So, if you haven’t checked this blog out yet, I highly recommend it.

(Do note though, that some of the posts are, well, a tad profane. Often wonderfully, artfully, passionately, singularly profane, but profane nonetheless. Just something to know going in …)

Mainly, there are some lovely tasting notes on the current vintage of Monte Bello (2006) as well as commentary on a rare tasting of 1992 Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay to be found there, amidst all the other “commentary on random observations.”

And so I say, cheers Bullfrog! And cheers to your companion “Crotchy” too!

p.s. For those of you keeping score, Ridge is Day 23!

p.p.s The 1992 Santa Cruz Mountains Chardonnay is no longer “officially” available, but between you and me, well, I just might have a line on a bottle or two … shhhhhh!

  1. Glad you’re enjoying Jerry Bullfrog’s blog. I think we’re trying the ’07 Dusi Ranch late harvest zin tomorrow night and I am very much looking forward to it.

  2. Thanks for the props, Christopher! As long as Ridge keeps producing amazing wine, I’ll keep the wonderful reviews coming.

    And yes, my passion for wine and the heat of the moment sometimes led me to make posts that were a bit… “graphic,” but they’ve all been toned-down while keeping the original intent and I’d now rate the blog “97% grandma-safe.”

    Cheers to all Ridge drinkers! You already know all about mighty-fine wine.
