    Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon 1974

    Bottle (2)

    "Like a true thoroughbred, this wine has become more impressive each time I taste it. Among the youngest wines of the vintage, it is reminiscent of a barrel sample, with a saturated purple color and a wonderfully rich, pure nose of cassis, minerals, licorice, and wood. It is completely unevolved aromatically. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, with spectacular concentration, layers of jammy, admirably extracted fruit, good underlying acidity, and plenty of tannin in the long finish. If anything, this wine needs another 5-8 years of cellaring. It possesses remarkable balance, with the fruit still outweighing the tannin." (92 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #94, Aug. 1994)
