2005 Hidden Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon 55% Slope Sonoma County

Wine Description

(From 2007 Vintage) Hidden Ridge 55% Slope is a dense layered wine showing flavors of cherry, tea, black currant, tobacco, clove and violet. The wine is great for sipping or pairing and will continue to develop over the next decade.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2008 Vintage) The vintage offers a wine of deep concentration and plush velvety texture. The nose begins with the scents of nutmeg, followed by cascades of red cherry, currant, and black raspberry. As the wine opens it reveals the 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. Delicious with decanting now, it will develop a decade or more in the cellar.

    (From «nv» Vintage) Notably supple and graceful for the vintage, this is firm, rich, and juicy with dark berry, mineral, cedar & tobacco flavors. Full-bodied, ending with a gravelly edge and a lift of berry and cigar box. Drink now through 2020.
