    November 30, 2014 - We drank this amongst several other wines. At the point we opened it, I had palate fatigue so am not scoring it. The wine was nice but definitely not worth the price. It followed a 2010 Ridge Geyserville which everyone agreed was better. GOOD.

    November 28, 2014 - Served with Thanksgiving dinner finishing the bottle later around the fireplace. Make no mistake this is a very enjoyable wine---my guests loved it. Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate, dominated the nose and palate with polished dark fruit that glided across the tongue. A rich mouth filling wine that was ready to go and easy to enjoy. All components were balanced with a medium finish. So why only 93 points? This is the perfect wine for those individuals who have not tasted a wide range of reds. For all the delicious fruit that is presented it does so n a singular manner. Complexity so far in this wines development has not presented itself. This wine is not for those that love sitting around discussing a wines nuances while noticing changes as the wine gains breathing time. Would I buy this wine again? Yes if I could get it for around $100 as it is a crowd pleaser for those wine drinkers who have not tasted many wines other than those found in a grocery store.

    November 27, 2014 - WOW! Very impressive. I'm not sure what berry I was smelling and tasting but it was full and flavorful.
    One of the best California Cabs I have ever had.

    November 16, 2014 - Second bottle from my six bottle purchase. Corked. Bummer. My wife and I opened to celebrate the birth of our twin daughters.

    October 8, 2014 - From magnum. Same flavor profile as the 2009, but a bit shorter with a bite on the finish.
