Dark and purple ruby core, slightly darker at the rim showing light staining on the glass.


Aromatic with bright ripe black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, baking spice, savory dried autumn leaves, subtle violet notes with a hint of caramelized barrel sweetness.


Dry, moderate plus bodied, with ripe red and black cherry, and blackcurrant fruit joined by vanilla and cinnamon spice notes on the entry. The mid-palate is fresh with sustained rip fruit, toasty oak notes and softly textured tannins. The finish is moderately long with notes of cherry candy and blackcurrant fruit matched with classic Cabernet savory elements.


The 2012 Young Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon is a great all-around choice for a wide range of food pairings from slow-cooked beef short ribs or a rich lamb stew, and of course prime rib. If you are looking for a quality, all-purpose red wine, this is it.
