Ridge Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Estate California 2014

Ridge Vineyards Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic. Especially outstanding 2014, the wine is structured, bold and intense with silky tannins.

"Deep purple color. Aromas of blackcurrant, cherries, clove spice, toasted oak, and cocoa. Ripe bramble fruit entry, medium-full body, supple tannins, and sweet oak; firm acid persists in a long finish" Winemaker's note

Sustainably farmed, hand-harvested, estate-grown grapes; destemmed and sorted; fermented on the native yeasts, minimal intervention.

"terrific" wine with an incredible value.

Drink 2020 - 2034

AWARDS AND REVIEWS

93 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous
“One of the many highlights in this range, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is terrific. The effects of the drought and resulting heat stress come through in the wine’s structural feel and bold, incisive flavors. Even with all of its intensity, the 2014 has a certain silkiness in its tannins that makes it approachable today. Of course, the 2014 will be even better in another few years, but opening a bottle on the early side is not a crime. The 2014 spent 27 months in French oak. Readers who are looking for a more affordable alternative to Ridge’s iconic Monte Bello should consider the 2014 Estate. Look for the Estate to be a real overachiever in 2014 as well as one of the best – possibly the best – California Cabernet in its price range.”

 “Made in a style that demands patience and cellaring, this is taut, firm, dense and sturdy. Not showing much now, but like good Bordeaux, this is built to age. Drink 2020 through 2034.” – JL
