Ever wondered exactly which wine to select off the shelves when there are hundreds to choose from? Some domestic bottles have really flashy labels that scream “Pick Me!”. Some European bottles have elegant script that suggests centuries of quality. At the end of the day, labels can tell us a little bit about the wine, but really, it’s what’s on the inside that counts!
The Ridge Crest Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 is packaged in a rather unassuming bottle but is quite possibly the best bang-for-your-buck cabernet you’ll ever taste! Dark plum, brambly blackberry, cedar and cigar box aroma graces the palate of dark fruit, mocha coffee and vanilla in spectacular fashion. The acidity is lively and supports the dark fruit without overwhelming it while soft tannins leave the aftertaste fresh and lingering.
Invite the neighbors over, throw some steaks on the grill, pull out a couple bottles of this and watch your reputation skyrocket!
