Winemaker Notes

This vintage offers a wine of deep concentration and plush velvety texture. The nose begins with the scent of nutmeg, followed by cascades of red cherry, currant, and black raspberry. As the wine opens it reveals layered aromas of a blackberry cordial, cedar, chocolate and brown sugar, with hints of black tea and bay laurel. Full bodied and rich, the wine has a supple mouth coating texture and abundant soft tannins. The finish entwines flavors of red currants, sour cherry, blueberry jam and boysenberries with cinnamon and cocoa powder.

Blend: 99.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, .5% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Rich, intense and well-centered, with vibrant blackberry, cedar, crushed rock and tobacco leaf flavors, ending with ripe, chewy tannins and good length.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
At almost five years of age, this Cab still tastes young and fruity. It's incredibly dense with cherry pie, mocha and buttered cinnamon-toast flavors--distinctly New World--yet balanced with fine acidity and complex, ripe tannins. Drink it now with a great steak, simply prepared, with a brown butter sauce.

Hidden Ridge Winery Image
Comprised of 55 acres of Cabernet and broken into 21 blocks, Hidden Ridge Vineyards is located in rugged terrain, between Mount Hood and Diamond Mountain on Mayacamas mountain range between Santa Rosa and St. Helena. At elevations ranging from 1200-1700 feet, their terraced vineyards fall between the range's saddles creating some of the most dramatic vineyard sites in Sonoma. Their closest neighbors are Pride & Paloma Vineyards.

"That's some good grape dirt up there," Oklahoma native and owner Lynn Hofacket points out eyeing his property. Adds winemaker Marco Di Giulio, "A vineyard so steep, so well developed, so interesting in its planning scheme and with so much vision behind it that I could not help but be blown away. I bring my other winemaker friends out there because I like to see the awed expressions on their faces. Yeah, it's really that amazing."

While Sonoma County is acclaimed—and rightfully so—for its Chardonnays, Pinot Noirs, and Zinfandels, it also produces exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon. Of the region’s 18 American Viticultural Areas, only a handful produce top-notch Cabernet Sauvignon. These appellations include Alexander Valley, Knights Valley, Sonoma Valley and Dry Creek Valley. Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignons made in these appellations can offer a complex array of aromas and flavors. Fruit notes such as blackberry, blackcurrant, cassis, black cherry and raspberry often are accompanied by hints of graphite, dusty earth, cigar box, toast and vanilla. The varietal has a rich history in Sonoma, and some of these Cabernet Sauvignons and Cabernet-based blends rival the best from Napa Valley.
