    August 15, 2017 - Good acidity and strong blackcurrent cassis fruit. Still got plenty of time. I'd leave a bit longer, like 3+ years. Still very primary.

    July 14, 2017 - From 375. Decanted 1 hour, slow ox 6 hours. Opaque to deep mahogany edge. Cassis, plum, cherry dill and cedar. Tastes of cherry (moslty) and black currants. Acidic and mouth watering, great balance. Tannin present in good measure. Long finish. Drinking well from 375 now, but has many, many years to go to be mature.

    June 11, 2017 - With Sirloin tip roast, vinegar potatoes, carrots.
    Pulled this wine when the Sean Minor turned up flawed - popped, decanted, served within 5 minutes from the cellar.
    Garnet, close to opaque, a muchness to this wine.
    Nose was initial muted (but typical Cabernet). Needed time to open. Oddly the nose came off as dry, smooth, and balanced, more so after an hour.
    Palate was proto-typical Cab/Bordeaux blend, blueberry/currant, lovely finish, smooth and lingering. By the end of dinner (we drank slowly), we got what we have come to expect from Ridge Estate. A wonderful wine.
