We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Available for:
Estate-grown Monte Bello grapes, hand harvested. Destemmed and sorted. Fermented on the native yeasts, full malolactic on the naturally-occurring bacteria. 0.11 g/L calcium carbonate to moderate the unusually high natural acidity in four of the seventeen parcels; minimum effective sulfur (30 ppm at crush, 99 ppm during aging). Pad filtered at bottling. In keeping with our philosophy of minimal intervention, this is the sum of our actions. High atop the cool Santa Cruz Mountains, our Monte Bello estate is an ideal site for the Bordeaux varietals.

One of the lowest-alcohol prestige Cabs on the market, Ridge's 2010 bottling is dry, softly tannic and light in body for a Cabernet Sauvignon. Yet it's complex in flavor, offering tiers of blackberries, cherries, currants, herbs and spices. Wants some time, but not a lot. Drink 2015-2018.

Bordeaux-like in terms of structure, austerity and taut flavor profile, this is well done, offering a mix of dried berry, herb, cherry, road tar, smoke and graphite notes, ending with licorice-laced tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2016 through 2030. 3,250 cases made.
