The Medlock Ames 2018 Estate Red was perhaps best described by Jackie, our wine director's mother, when she said "I really want to drink this with a burger, any burger!" That's the kind of drinkability to be had here! Just don't think that means the wine lacks complexity, because the Bell Mountain Ranch vineyard excelled in 2018 and produced fantastic fruit. The blend here is dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon and supplemented by a host of Bordeaux varieties. 92pts James Suckling.
Chris Medlock James and Ames Morison, college best friends who left the hustle of New York City for the rolling hills of eastern Sonoma County, knew what they wanted from the beginning. Driving around Chalk Hill Road, their vision was realized at Bell Mountain Ranch. Ames is the winemaking force here, reaching for hillside Cabernet Sauvignon (and other Bordeaux varieties) that exude power without excess. These are delicious wines that can be enjoyed young or with a few years of bottle age on them!Learn More
