    December 20, 2014 - Wonderfully balanced with an appealing cassis, blackberry, loam, cedarwood character. Very persistent on the palate. Long finish. From magnum. Young approachable now, but would love to revisit in 5 years! 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc; 13% alcohol

    December 16, 2014 - Klar, dyp mørk rød. Mørk nese med solbær, kirsch, mildt treverk, lette,florale toner og hint av vanilje.
    Klar og fast frukt med fin konsentrasjon og frisk, saftig syre. Lett og slank kropp, men med god fylde. Milde tanniner i tørr utgang med fin lengde. Lette kryddertoner i finish. Trenger tid.

    December 8, 2014 - Nose is initially rich cassis and ripe blackberry, slight metallic/graphite note, some woody herbs, over time smooths out and joined by subtle but deep coffee and cocoa, more baked fruit. Palate has good acid (especially on the attack) and medium plus tannins (fine, leathery, especially on mid-palate). Finish is very long and surprisingly bright with a red fruit kick after 5-10 seconds, notable pomegranate. Extremely delicious but young. Could use another 5 years. 13.0% $45. 92+

    November 13, 2014 - "America's First Growth" The Ridge Tasting (Tott's, The Excelsior): Far finer than the zins that went before. Leafy, tobacco aromas stand out amongst fruit which give welcome complexity. All slightly too subtle perhaps but very easy to drink right now.
