Still going strong. Clear rim to dark dark red in the center. Fruit is a bit muted on the nose - not quite sure what I'm smelling. Not quite briar, not quite barn, good tho.... Beam of red fruit in the center with a long finish. Can't believe how well this is holding up. I have only one left..

(Ridge Geyserville) Slightly bricking medium dark red violet color; big baked berry, black plum, currants nose; oak, baked berry, allspice palate, needs to integrate, needs another 3-plus years; medium-plus finish 90+ pts. (76% Zinfandel, 18% Carignane, 6% Petite Sirah)
(RIDGE GEYSERVILLE RED) #1; COLOR-dark; NOSE-very tight, milk chocolate cherry flavor, TASTE-this is good wine, fills your palate dramatically, quick blast of well integrated fruit, heavy wine (felt like chewing), coats entire palate, LOT of cherry, dried raisin, hints of green pepper, really liked the jam extract, very New World, very structured, great mid-palate, transition from overall fruits to the long finish was seamless (like a perfect symphony), really impressed, great structure & mouth feel, great w/ fruit, absolute lovely bottle; GV-91
(Ridge Vineyards Geyserville Zinfandel) A complex, deeply fruited nose, with a confit style. Nevertheless the palate has appeal. It is balanced, not overly opulent, with a good tannic backbone. There is a fine presence of fruit and complex interest. Nice finish and length. Really good style here.
