Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2013

Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2013

Sku: 059033

In 1886 the Monte Bello vineyard was first planted and construction on the winery begun. The first vintage was in 1892. In the early 1940s, the last of the old vineyard was abandoned; in the late forties a few blocks were replanted. Those cabernet vines—now sixty years old—produced the first Ridge Monte Bello (1962) and subsequent vintages until the mid-seventies. By then, abandoned blocks replanted during the sixties were maturing, and their fruit considered for use in the Monte Bello. 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 becomes Ridge Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, stressing the varietal and the Monte Bello vineyard as its source.

Wine maker notes
Aromas of blackberries, cassis, violets, and licorice. Dark berry flavors together with crushed rock minerals, cocoa, exotic oak spice, and chaparral. Full bodied with chalky tannins and lively acidity.
