Winemaker Notes

2019 Sauvignon Blanc — $24

Clean, fresh, and soft subtle citrus flavors of grapefruit and lime, apple, and pineapple. This is a refreshing wine for a hot summer day and pairs well with shellfish.

2018 Semillon — $27

Aged and barrel fermented in mostly French Oak and Acacia wood. Soft aromas with green apples, grapefruit, pineapple and lanolin. Flavors carry onto the palate with an underlying acid structure to make a nicely balanced wine. Well balanced acid, light fruit, and low alcohol make this a great wine for a hot summer day.

 

2017 Black Label Cabernet Sauvignon — $40
Gold Medal — SF Chronicle

Cuda Ridge considers this a New World style wine. From start to finish line this wine carries fruit forward characteristics. This is 100% Cabernet sourced from the White Cat and Galles vineyards, aged mostly in American oak. Bright and clean on the palate, dark fruit of blackberries, plum, and licorice. Fasten your seatbelt and take this wine for a ride.

Chronicle

It starts with ripe cherries, raspberries, black cherry, sandalwood, and coconut on the nose which carries over to the palate. The finish has stout tannins and a black pepper finish. This wine opens up as the bottle is opened and should evolve nicely with age. Pairs nicely with light meats, and light to moderate spiced foods; or drink by itself!

 

2017 Petit Verdot — $40
Gold Medal — SF Chronicle 

Deep dark in color with fruit on the nose of blueberry and lilac. Dark fruit and baking spices on the palate. Medium structured and consistency from beginning to end.
