Ridgeline Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley Lone Pine 2007

Member Review by VegasOenophile:

Wonderfully ripe, fresh red berry fruit along with some blackberry, cassis, and sweet oak on the nose. It's got that bright, vibrant lush fruit for 2007 but has nice tannin and acid to back it up, offering a layered, tasty wine. Currant, cassis, and crushed fresh red raspberry, strawberry and blackberry fruit with oak spice and vanilla accents. 91 pts. 7/5/12
