    November 26, 2016 - Having cut my teeth on Petite Sirah with Ridge's super 1984 York Creek (with all of it's volatile acidity and foxiness flaws), I have come to expect high extraction and power from any PS of repute.

    Tonight I compared a 2006 and this 2010 PS from Ridge. Wow. Ridge has not kept up with the power concept of California PS.

    The 2006 was dead-in-the-water...really no life or substance. The 2010 had some life, and was balanced, but offered no focused power. No perceivable extract, some blackberry character, but nothing to keep up with a rich meal.

    Perhaps if this were drunk at 3-4 years of life there would be more vitality, but that is NOT what PS should be about. A 10-year-old PS should just be coming into it's own--tons of tannic blackberry velvet should be evident.

    May 7, 2016 - Deep dark red full body wine. Good nose followed by broad black berry and cherry fruits with a hint of liquorish. Nice long finish. This wine has been random over the years and it is either just entering its drinking window or leaving it.

    March 19, 2016 - A good but not great wine. Deep dark red medium - full wine. Smoky fruits hard to distinguish. Short finish was surprisingly coarse.

    This wine appears to be leaving its drinking zone.

    February 21, 2016 - An enjoyable wine but not memorable. Fruits included blackberry with a surprising hint of granite. Average finish. Perhaps the wine is at the end of its drinking window.
