Antonio Galloni

Once again an overachiever, Ridge`s 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is regal. Aromatically intense and deep on the palate, the 2016 proves to be utterly captivating from the very first taste. Dark fruit, chocolate, licorice, dried flowers, leather and menthol infuse the 2016 with remarkable complexity. In 2016, the last year of the drought cycle Ridge made one of the very best editions of this wine. Just as remarkably, the 2016 is incredibly harmonious for such a young wine. 94 points

Deep purple colour. Focused, pure nose of cassis here. Flecks of sweet and savoury spices add complexity, but this is driven by black fruit. The palate is muscular and rich in structure. Despite this, the intensity of fruit adds an approachability that belies the chalky tannins. Vibrant and yet ripe, this finds the perfect balance between sweetness and tension. Excellent. 17+ points
