With grilled T-bone, roast potatoes and green beans. Crimson, good color to the rim, medium intensity. Blueberry and perhaps some black cherry nose. Medium weight, dry, muted tannin, acid for balance, medium length. A bit of plum on the palate, with black pepper and perhaps a touch of oak in the background.
Ridge always seems to deliver good wines - this one the fruit is fading a bit and the oak is showing through perhaps stronger than some may like, nice sweetness without being too much , but nothing overpowering or disjointed. I think these are ready to drink.
