K&L Notes

This is the "little brother" to Ridge's famed Monte Bello Cabernet Sauvignon. This comes from vines at the Monte Bello vineyard that were selected for consistently producing a more accessible, early-drinking wine. (For longtime Ridge fans, this used to be labeled the Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet, but starting with the 2008 vintage the winery chose to highlight Cabernet as the dominant varietal; Monte Bello Vineyard is listed on the label as the source--not to be confused with the Monte Bello Vineyard premier bottling.) From winemaker Eric Baugher: "Ruby-tinged opaque purple. Ripe blackberry, cassis. Violets, espresso, dark chocolate, caramelized sugar. Concentrated briar fruit, full body, chalky tannins. Layers of licorice, cola, sweet oak. Complex limestone/mineral elements in a long, intense, finish."
