Robert Parker Wine Advocate Issue #216 December 2014 Rating: 94 Drink 2015 - 2035

The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon 55 Degrees Slope exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color as well as beautiful, sweet crème de cassis, Asian plum sauce, licorice and forest floor notes. Full-bodied with velvety tannins, and impressive concentration, texture and length, this superb Cabernet can be drunk early in life because of its velvety opulence or cellared for two decades. I was greatly impressed with the Hidden Ridge offerings last year, and once again their current and upcoming releases merit interest. The winemaker is Timothy Milos, and the wines come from steep slopes on the west side of Spring Mountain. The elevations range between 900 and 1,700 feet.

"The stunning 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon 55% Slope Impas sable Mountain Reserve (15% alcohol) boasts copious notes of licorice, creme de cassis, charcoal, blackberries and forest floor in a rich, full-bodied, opulent style. Vaguely reminiscent of some of Diamond Creek Cabernet Sauvignons made in the mid-1970s, this brilliant wine should age easily for 20-25 years. Something of this quality from Napa would cost two to ten times as much."

The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Impassable Mountain Reserve (the name refers to 19th century surveyors who were trying to lay a stagecoach line through these steep slopes) can easily compete with the finest of Napa. Aromas of pen ink, graphite, black plums, cassis and primordial foresty notes are followed by a full-bodied, opulent, multilayered, skyscraper-like, stunning Cabernet Sauvignon. It can be drunk now for its exuberance and sweet tannins, but it promises to evolve for two decades. This beauty is another great effort from a winery that remains under-the-radar for most consumers.

Our first release this small block of Chardonnay was budded over from Cabernet Sauvignon in 2012 onto original Hidden Ridge rootstock that was over a decade old.  The budwood is a mix of heritage selections from several Sonoma County vineyards, and includes old Wente selection.  This horth facing block is one of the coolest at our site, providing a protected environment for the Chardonnay to slowly ripen and develope flavor.  The fruit was hand harvested on a single day, delivered whole cluster direct to the press and settled briefly in the tank.  The chilled juice and much of the gross lees were drained to french oak barrels (approximately one third new barrels) to ferment.  Malolactic fermentation was allowed to complete in the barrel.  The wine was stirred every two weeks  until the new year then monthly until the following August.  The wine was racked from the barrels off the lees.
