    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.

    June 9, 2017 - Needed to be decanted to blow off a bit of funk on the nose. After that, really youthful and still a little tannic. Palate had a lovely, velvety, rich cassis, though still very firm
