The Sage Ridge Vineyard is in the glitzy ‘Pritchard Hill’ area, facing Chappellet and Colgin Cellars across the edges of Lake Hennessey in the Vaca Mountains. The soil’s story endures with the uplifting of ancient shallow seabeds, plate tectonics, and glaciation that continues over millennia with the erosion and transportation of old metamorphic rock created under intense heat and pressure.
The signature characteristics of the Cabernets produced here are a delectably pure fruit character delivered with finesse, and aromatically lifted by an unmistakable mix of wildflowers and savoury herbs.
The 2018 spent 20 months in 100% new French oak.
