April 15, 2014 - Black pepper nose and flavors of spice, dark fruit and pepper. The flavors are good, but seems just a bit thin. There are really great tannins, at least "she" thinks so.

February 8, 2014 - Much better. Tanins settling down. Shows promise. Could be quite nice in another year.

January 1, 2014 - ABV 15.2; deep earth and barrel nose; dirt, deep primary mixed dark fruit with some sweetness as well, prominent tannins; big and primary with good typicity; didn't really notice any heat; i liked it, but marilyn likened it to a barrel sample. worked with pizza but didn't really complement the food; ultimately polished off with cheese and nuts; seems to need plenty of time.
October 20, 2013 - Ugg. All tanins, little fruit left. Not sure why I am in such disagreement with community, but my bottle was poor. Not corked. Maybe it will tenderize some steaks. Don't want to dilute point avg, so only posting note. Usually very happy with Ridge wines.
October 4, 2013 - Nose: loam and mushroom with hints of roasted meat
Palate: spicy and rather tannic with woody notes and just a hint of red berry. Needs time.
