Gorgeous BC Cabernet Sauvignon that still needs cellar time. Aromas of cassis and wild blackberry wrapped in toasty oak. Complex and concentrated. Only 175 cases produced. Decant 2 hours and pair with a rare steak.

Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

Wonderful and special! Lots going on with this robust and flavourful Cabernet Sauvignon. Truly special, Noble Ridge only releases their "king's ransom" line of wines in exceptional years, and the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is the first release of its kind for this grape variety. Lots of red currant, leather, smoke and spice on the nose. Full bodied, with firm, grippy tannin that will benefit from aging (but if you can't wait, just decant for an hour or so). Balanced acidity, with currant, smoke, and eucalyptus notes on the palate. Long finish and so balanced and lovely. Well done! Enjoy with a steak or rack of lamb.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
