This is a Cabernet Sauvignon from the Monte Bello Vineyard in the Santa Cruz Mountains. California Ridge Vineyards Estate (2013) is black plum, cassis, blackberry, violets and smoke. on the nose and palate. Great intensity, length, character and backbone, pair with grilled meats. Decant two hours prior to serving, can easily for 10 years to marry and mature to bring out its best. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
