2018 Norton Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon
Norton Ridge is a project put together by T. Edward Wine Company. Their goal was simple: create excellent, food-friendly wines at a reasonable price. To do this, they leveraged their decades-long relationships with grape growers in Sonoma and Napa counties. By starting with grapes of exceptional quality and having the freedom to blend grapes from different parts of California, they didn’t need to do much in the cellar. None of the wines see new oak and very little intervention was needed. Turns out, that when you use good grapes, it’s easy to make good wines. Their Cabernet Sauvignon is classic in style and allowed to speak for itself. Rich, dark flavors of plum, boysenberry and mocha balanced by cassis tobacco notes.
