ABOUT THIS WINE
While it’s true that visitors to Napa Valley can see a wide variety of notable vineyards along Hwy 29 and Silverado Trail, there are also plenty of ultra-premium sites hidden from the public eye above the valley floor. Leroy Young and his family took these thoughts to mind when they began producing a series of world-class wines made with precious fruit from their high- elevation Young Ridge Vineyards. Running along the rugged ridgelines of Carneros near Napa and Pope Valley east of St. Helena, these premium estate blocks are ideal for growing ultra- premium Cabernet Sauvignon grapes used to produce rich, powerful and complex wines that are approachable when young and built to age.
92 POINTS - "Deep, dense and sophisticated. This estate wine opens up with alluring aromas of ripe berries, dark fruits, dried herbs, leather, tobacco and noticeable hints of mineral, fresh earth and spice. On the palate, the robust flavors of dark plum, cherry, black raspberry, grenadine, wild sage and bittersweet chocolate are balanced with firm tannins, silky texture, and a kiss of cedar leading to a long, velvety finish. Pure mountain fruit in every sip." - Chris Sawyer
90 POINTS - "Eclectic nose of dried black cherry & currants, dried mushroom, damp florest floor, rosemary, hints of leather. This southern Napa Valley cab hits the taste buds with baked dark fruit, sandelewood, white pepper, and bramble stemmy tennis. A unique tasting cabernet with dry finish." S. Kleinfeld - Certified Sommelier
To match these rich, bold and vibrant flavors, try this wine with rich cheeses, wild mushroom risotto, pan-seared duck, hearty stews, roasted lamb, and grilled steaks.
