Alder Ridge is a Washington State cabernet with a bouquet of cedar, licorice and cigar. This cab is spicy with a dried cherry taste that is sharp on the tongue. I recommend this wine with hearty meats, such as a beef salami, and spicy food. My wife really didn’t like this cab and I am not a fan of this cab. I picked this up for $16.99 at Costco. I am giving it 2 glasses.
