Ridge Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
This wine is typically made with 94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Merlot and offers a bountiful nose of dark plum, black cherry, cedar, cola and sweet toasted oak on the nose. The palate is full bodied and textured with black berry, cocoa powder, brown spices and peppermint. The tannins are focused and draw the wine into a long finish.
In 1886, the first blocks of the Monte Bello Vineyard were planted and construction on the winery began. The first vintage was the 1892 and in the early 1940s, the last of the old vineyard was abandoned and a few new blocks were replanted with Cabernet Sauvignon. Those Cabernet vines, now over sixty five years old, produced the first Ridge Monte Bello in 1962 and subsequent vintages until 1974. By then, other abandoned blocks had been replanted 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 became the Ridge Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, stressing the principal varietal and the Monte Bello Estate vineyard as its source.
