THE WINE

Sitting high atop a 1,700-foot peak at the southwestern edge of the Dry Creek Valley only 15 miles from the Pacific, Simpson Ridge enjoys full days of hot sunshine tempered by cool airflow from the ocean, an ideal climate for lush, well-structured Cab.

SOURCING

Simpson Ridge, Dry Creek Valley

VINEYARD NOTES

The soil, comprised of decomposed sedimentary rock from ancient seafloor, is well-draining with low fertility, creating small clusters of dense, strikingly rich fruit. 

VARIETAL COMPOSITION

100% Cabernet Sauvignon

VINTAGE NOTES

Record setting rain and cooler temperatures lengthened dormancy, with first signs of budbreak mid-March. Hotter than average days brought Harvest mid-August with lower than average yields.

WINEMAKING NOTES

TASTING NOTES

Beautiful aromas of fresh baked berry pie with black tea and a wisp of pine capture the senses, while a tightly wound palate of chewy tannins and great acidity indicate years of fruitful development ahead, or at least a good couple of hours in a decanter before enjoying.
