Ok, it didn’t actually walk in, at least not by itself. It came in the company of my new two favorite people in the world, Judi Rosenthal and Peter Dalena. What wondrous folks! They drove all the way up the mountain to share this outstanding rarity with our Monte Bello Tasting Room staff, and we can’ t thank them enough!
Did I mention this was a 1964 Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon?
That’s a 46-year-old wine, in case you’re counting …
And the color …
And to give credit where credit is due, here is a snapshot of our lovely benefactors!
And just in case you’d like to watch the tasting action live, here’s a bit of video for you (I think Tara’s reaction at the end pretty much sums up all our feelings; the wine was still tasting wondrously!)
