Classic Cali syrah. Ridge ATP selection kept at the bottom of the cellar on purpose, with great results. Dark to the rim, no visible signs of age. Nose of stewed plums, vanilla, leather, bacon fat. Tannin well integrated, nice acidic backbone, well balanced. Drinking very well, can go longer though. Wish I had more. These wines are outstanding values.
