ridge, california cabernet sauvignon monte bello, santa cruz mountains 2018
A beautiful, fresh red with blackberry, blueberry and some chocolate. Pine, light toffee and coffee undertones. Dried herbs, too. Medium to full body with intensity and richness. Dusty tannins. Savory finish. Very drinkable now, but even better in 2023.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 Ridge Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is on point and well-structured. TASTING NOTES: This wine shows up with dried herbs, black fruit, and oak in its aroma and flavors. Pair it with a garlic and rosemary-laden, roast leg of lamb. (Tasted: April 16, 2021, San Francisco, CA)
