Description

Cabernet Sauvignon vines first planted in 1886 were originally used to produce Ridge Vineyard’s “Monte Bello” wine, a number of those consistently produced a more accessible wine that developed its full complexity earlier and these were combined as the “Santa Cruz Mountains.” With the 2008 vintage the name of this stylistically distinct wine became the Ridge Vineyards Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, stressing the principal varietal and the Monte Bello estate vineyard as its source.

Saturated purple in colour. Aromas of cassis, blueberry, cola, liquorice, and sweet oak. Ripe blackberry fruit entry, full bodied, rich textures, exotic spice roasted coffee, and toasted oak aftertaste. Complex, long, sensuous finish.

One of the best-loved names (and most distinctive labels) in wine, Ridge has achieved the rare distinction of iconic status not just domestically, in the US, but around the world wherever fine wine is consumed. This is thanks to the thoughtful and consistent application of simple principles: carefully chosen, mature vineyards farmed with great care; minimum-intervention winemaking; production decisions guided by continual blind tasting; and total transparency through ingredient labelling. The result is a range of spectacular and distinctive wines that have made certain vineyards into household names: Geyserville, Lytton Springs and of course Monte Bello. Through pursuit of quality on its own unwavering terms, Ridge has become immune to the whims of fashion, and joined the ranks of the timeless classics.
