Bramble, vanilla, red fruit. Medium-high acid, fairly low tannin. Fruit is fading and the finish is a bit drying. Sadly, it's best days are behind it (at least for this bottle), but still pleasant, if not ever great. Drink now.
Very interesting wine. Nose is almost CdP like with dried fruit and spiciness. Palate is very smooth and integrated, showing a little fatigue here but spicy with dried red fruits. Short to medium length finish. I don't see this getting better as its a little tired. Certainly not dead and quite interesting.
Superripe dark berry fruit on the nose, just on the proper side of not being overripe, with nicely integrated vanilla and dill from the American oak. In the mouth it's a big ball of dense, round, juicy fruit, with good acidity and the mostly-resolved tannins just providing a hint of grip. This is not the most complex or long-lived Geyserville (I wouldn't wait on this any longer), but it's pretty darn delicious anyway.

(Ridge Geyserville) From magnum - bricking medium dark red violet color; mature, berry, chocolate, black raspberry nose; tasty, berry, wild berry, raspberry, herbal palate; medium-plus finish 92+ points
(Ridge Vineyards Geyserville) A deep red hue tinged with mahogany rim. A harder, more muted nose than the other wines, although it opens out to reveal some good fruit. On the palate this wine has an elegance and structure reminiscent of the 1991 just tasted. Medium bodied, full and sweetly flavoured. Good texture, and balanced acidity. Supple tannins. Lovely.
