Food Pairings for Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon Santa Cruz Mountains Estate
This wine is a 2005 vintage and is a blend of 69% Syrah, 18% Mourvedre, 5% Grenache, 5% Petite Sirah, and 3% Other. This wine is a beautiful deep purple in color with just a touch of transparency. When you first take a smell of this wine there is a strong odor of alcohol which isn't totally surprising as it is listed as 14.3%. The next smell let's you sneak a peek behind the curtain to the plum and black cherries that linger there. On the palate you can taste those black cherries with a hint of green pepper and a touch of lingering smoke. This wine was very tight when first opened, it needed to be decanted and let sit for at least an hour before it opened up. The results were worth the wait though as this medium bodied wine was a delight to drink after that point.
This is tasty and smooth cab from someone who doesn't like cabs.
58% cabernet sauvignon 42% merlot Elegant structure and the rich, briary fruit typical of our Santa Cruz Mountains estate combine to give the wine immediate appeal. An excellent vintage, it will continue to develop over the next 12-14 years.
Deep, rich, chunky and full-bodied. Loads of black fruit, licorice, espresso roast, slight tobacco and a hint of chocolate.
