100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Santa Cruz Mountains
Cabernet from the old Klein Ranch on Monte Bello Ridge was world-renowned at the turn of the last century. During the late sixties and early seventies, Ridge worked with the Schwabacher family—who have owned the ranch since 1936—to replant the vineyard. For the last six years a limited number of barrels has been set aside for the Advance Tasting Program. This distinctive, well-structured wine is approachable now and will develop fully over the next five to ten years. PD (3/97)
Since 1962, Ridge has championed single-vineyard winemaking, searching California for those rare vineyards where climate, soil, and varietal are ideally matched. Fine wine, when made traditionally, is the result of a natural process. Ridge’s aim is to implement that process; using traditional methods and minimal handling, we strive to produce exceptional wines from superior and distinctive fruit.
