The 2017 Ridge ‘Estate’ Cabernet is taken from the famed Monte Bello vineyard this wine shows beautifully with gorgeous notes of cassis, crushed violets, and graphite. This is focused and really deserves some time in the glass to show its true potential. If you are a fan of Bordeaux this is a must try.
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate showed beautifully, with gorgeous notes of cassis, crushed violets, graphite, and lead pencil all emerging from the glass. Showing plenty of richness and depth, medium to full body, good acidity, and plenty of firm tannins, it's not a blockbuster, but it has the balance and class to evolve for 15 years or more. The blend is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot.
