Why? What's wrong with lower alcohol wines? Ridge Monte Bello, arguably the finest wine in the country, typically weighs in at 13.5% and only very rarely ventures over 14%.




When I was up at Ridge, in May of 2006, they were tasting the 1994 Monte Bello. They also had a 1990 Monte Bello. I remember at least one of them was at an even 12% alcohol, and the other was between 12.5% and 13%.

I also completely agree, Monte Bello is one of the best!
