Light purple. Cigar tobacco, licorice, strawberry and mineral on the nose . Drank over two hours. Black raspberry, sage, grilled meat, nicely done acidity, elegant but flavorable. Drinking well now, but should continue to do well for years to come. Drank with pasta and a red sauce. Held up to the food as well as Italian wines. Ridge consistently makes good Zins.

Wine aging excellently. Not a giant Amador type fruit bomb but a more Rhonish classically balanced wine, with cherries, and rasberies, a touch a smoky oak, a hint of orange peel.

Last bottle of the 07 and this one drank the best of the bunch. Nicely integrated and smoother than previous bottles. Went well with food too.

Fruitdriven aromas of raspberries, blueberries and some darker berries, also an airy fresness, anise, white chocolate. Very forward taste also, very immediate, not so long. Very fine and interesting wine.

Bouteille en parfaite condition, bouchon un peu sec qui a cassé au milieu. Into neck. Dégusté un demi verre pour décider si on carafe ou non. Carafé durant 1 heure avant de déguster. Couleur grenat foncé avec quelques nuances orangées de ci de là.
Le premier nez est toujours un peu poussiéreux et le passage en carafe lui a fait le plus grand bien. Le nez est très bordelais avec beaucoup de notes de fruits noirs, de fumée, de mocca.
La bouche, elle, est plus californienne, plus chaude, plus ronde, plus épaisse, torréfiée mais sans lourdeur aucune. Le vin montre aussi une certaine complexité, notamment avec une finale très longue et savoureuse.
Cela faisait presque 3 ans que je n'avais pas bu ce vin et cette bouteille était bien supérieure à la précédente.
Selon moi, le vin est à pleine maturité et devrait y rester durant 5 à 10 ans encore.

Dark red, looks brand new. Large tasting pours. Coravined. Compared to the 86 & 2000 Mondavi Cabs this was a deeper, richer, more complex wine. Great combination of secondary flavors and dark fruit. This continued to open up, improve and integrate over two hours. Mature, but not old. Good Cali Cabs IMHO compete very well against Bordeaux. This was excellent at 25 years old!

This was a great, served with grilled Delmonico steaks. So fresh for a wine with 9 years of age, this had a purity of fruit that made you take notice. So much cassis, a classic Cabernet profile that begged for another sip due to the long finish and vibrant acidity.

Pleasant. Clearly aged can, but held up better than the Mondavi. Less forest and earth, more bright red fruit, but still very restrained. Like it.

Last tasted 5 months ago. Pretty much the same as when last tasted, except the tannin seems much more resolved and softer; still a very slight acidic sting on the tongue, but not a detraction from appreciating the wine. Aromas and flavors of blackberry, black currant, earth, spice, hints of cinnamon and licorice. Fruit is ripe, intense and rich. Smooth in the mouth. A medium finish.

Double decanted. In a wonderful place and came across much younger than I would have expected. Offers up large scale, black cherry fruit with bold dark minerality. So well integrated with perfect structure and balance. Goes on for at least a minute. Nice complexity for such a bold wine. Amazing stuff, no hurry to drink up. Can you tell I liked this quite a bit and it was up against a Harlan and a Shafer HSS. Who woulda thunk?

Sonoma Winter WINEland 2015 (Sonoma): Highly concentrated dark ruby in the glass. Pronounced tearing.
Slightly reductive nose of distinct bacon, with ripe raspberry, red cherry.
In the mouth. Dark fruit, powerful, and extracted, with elevated tannins. Reminds me of a Sagrantino. Rich, with a bit of mushroom, blackberry. It’s blocky and monolithic. I’m digging this. Strong fruit on the palate but closed down on the nose. This seems like it should age for a decade or three. This is a style I really like. (didn’t note the tannin texture).

Score: Around 9.
