Good now with plenty of firm tannins for ageing. Red cherry flavors after savory notes.

I loved this. I'm usually not swooned easily by California cab these days, but this bottle rocked me. Juicy rich sweet black fruit, vanilla and chocolate overtones and aromatics of cedar, market cherry, and eucalyptus. Dense but velvety on the finish. What a well-done cab from an oft-overlooked part of California. It probably didn't hurt that I had Georg Riedel pouring it for me out of a gorgeous decanter either.

Juicy, delicious fruit and spice. Wonderfully balanced but did well with more air, even a day or two after popping. Drinking great now but would love to try this in 10+ years.

I love ridge so I’m probably bias but what a great Cabernet. Here to believe you get this quality at this price point. Well rounded, full bodied and solid fruit with a soft finish.
