Hidden Ridge



Extreme Mountain Terrain Vineyard-
Exceptional, Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

Lynn Hofacket and wife and partner Casidy Ward purchased this remote property, an abandoned private hunting club, in 1990 and transformed the untamed wilderness area into the magnificently terraced Hidden Ridge Vineyard.

Located in rugged terrain, between Mount Hood and Diamond Mountain on the Mayacamas Mountain range. the vineyard sits at elevations ranging from 999-1700 feet, and falls between the range's saddles creating some of the most dramatic vineyard views in Sonoma.  The closest neighbors are Pride and Paloma Vineyards. 

Hofacket and crew cleared, terraced, and planted the 60 acres primarily to Cabernet Sauvignon over the course of six years.  Referrred to as the "ultimate sweat equity project", the endeavor was truly an amazing accomplishment considering the remote and extreme landscape.  Some of the Hidden Ridge slopes are 55%, comparable to the Alto Douro of Portugal and the Mosel in Germany.

Recognizing the exceptional quality of their vineyard, Lynn and Casidy decided not to sell their grapes, but instead to develope their own brand.  The Hidden Ridge 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon inaugural release was awarded 92 points from the Wine Spectator and the wine has earned consistent remarkable recognition from top wine press ever since.

Described by the Wine Enthusiast as a "modern cult style", the wine is lush and juicy with dense complex flavors, yet amazingly soft tannins providing a very opulent and attractive mouth-feel.  Well-structured and well-proportioned, this is a stunning example of true, single vineyard, mountain Cabernet Sauvignon.  Hidden Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted by veteran winemaker and mountain fruit specialist, Timothy Milos.
