The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Impassable Mountain Reserve sounds relatively intimidating, but if you want a quintessential example of what perfection is in my business, taste this wine! Absolutely remarkable in every sense – the incredible pure aromatics of blue, red and black fruits, the minerality, the volcanic, earthy sweetness that emerges in a subtle fashion, the full-bodied opulence, the staggering finish of more than a minute, and its unreal concentration certainly make this one of the most compelling and profound Cabernet Sauvignons I have ever tasted, and the first perfect wine of 2016. This should be nearly immortal, drinking well young, and for those with the patience and wisdom to wait 25-35 years, a legacy wine from Sonoma.
Hidden Ridge Vineyard is located in Sonoma County, Napa Valley. The property was purchased in 1990, developed throughout the following years, and achieved a small but devoted following. In 2016, new owners acquired the acclaimed Hidden Ridge property and its unique terroir. Two Estate Cabernet Sauvignons are produced from the vineyard – “Slope” and “Impassable Mountain” – and have consistently been rated 90+ by industry aficionados. In 2014, Wine Spectator rated the 2009 “55% Slope” #32 of the Top 100 Wines of the year. The 2012 “Impassable Mountain Reserve” achieved a 97-point score from Robert Parker, and in March 2016, the 2013 Impassable Mountain received a perfect score of 100 points by Robert Parker.
