2013 Estate Cabernet – One of 13 Best Wines for Fall


In a recent interview with Forbes, Vinous Media’s Antonio Galloni was asked to recommend his favorite wines to drink this fall. Our 2013 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon was named as one of his top 13 wines for the fall. Here is an excerpt from the interview where he speaks about our cabernet:

“Perched high atop the North Atlantic plate in the Santa Cruz Mountains, Ridge’s Monte Bello property boasts a rich lineage that goes all the way back to the 1880s. Even today, the drive up the winding roads that lead to the top of Monte Bello is arduous. It’s virtually impossible to imagine what conditions must have been like 130 years ago,” Galloni notes. “Ridge’s 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is fabulous. Beams of tannin and acidity make a strong opening statement, but there is more than enough fruit to fill out the wine’s frame. This is an especially dark, virile Estate. Then again, that is 2013. Inky blue-purplish fruit, licorice, sage, exotic spices, and lavender grace the exquisite finish. This is an absolutely delicious mountain Cabernet endowed with real pedigree and class. It is also arguably the single greatest value in California Cabernet Sauvignon.”
