Hidden Ridge 2006 55% Slope Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting notes: The texture is smooth, and flavors of chocolate, spiced plum, espresso, and tarragon lead to a lengthy crescendo. Worth knowing: The vistas from a 165-acre parcel on the Sonoma County, Calif., side of the Mayacamas Mountains convinced Lynn Hofacket and Casidy Ward that the site would be ideal for a country home. Unfortunately, its precipitous slopes proved an obstacle to cost-effective construction. So the couple decided to plant cabernet sauvignon, and the Hidden Ridge 2006 55% Slope Cabernet Sauvignon affirms the wisdom of their decision.
