    April 13, 2014 - consistent with notes of 2/27/2014 - I'm still not sure I am reviewing the correct wine, Ridge has changed the naming so often. The label reads, "Ridge Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet 1995"and is a blend of 75% Cab, 11% Petit Verdot and 4% Merlot.

    February 27, 2014 - WOTN on a night when everything tasted was supposedly on the edge or past its prime. Bold currant and plum, good pepper and leather balance. Certainly not young, but would have never guessed its age.

    April 15, 2010 - Light garnet color. Strong musty blackberries, black pepper, and spice on the nose initially that fades in intensity after a couple of hours in the decanter. Red fruits dominate with both strawberries and raspberries in evidence. The finish is dominated by both and lasts well over a minute. The mouth-feel is a bit thin. This wine evolved in a very interesting manner over the course of its 2-hour decanting. At one point it reminded me a great deal of a 1998 Chateau de la Gardine, a Chateauneuf du Pape that I like very much, but this stage only lasted a half-hour or so. The tannins started to take hold towards the end.
