Ridge Santa Cruz Mountains 2004

87 points

California, USA. 13%

Dark colour.

You have to look (breathe) past the acetone aromas.

A flavoursome bright Cabernet with some charm. Not heavy at all but full bodied. Drink 2011-2015.

2012 UPDATE – the oak is still strong.  American oak unfortunately.  Very dry and savoury, quite unlike the typical Cali Cab.  Looks like it may benefit from a couple more years.
