Old California Wine Dinner....1941-1986 (Merced, Ca): Had along with the '71/'73 Freemark Abbey York Creek.....this is classic Ridge! Wonderful ripe Zin-like fruit, bright and fresh red berry, almost late harvest-like. 12.7 alc, which was the lowest of the 3...I would have thought higher? Killer floral fresh bouquet of flowers, dusty dried cherry spice/herbs, coffee, silky smooth. Really drinking well...my fav of all the PS'.
Wow! Beautiful cassis and plum liquor nose. Very lively red velvet color with distinct clear edges. Nose of black jelly beans and licorice, sweet red and dark fruits. The mouth feel is structured, with sweet berry fruit and sweet melt-in-your-mouth tannins. Outstanding for the fruit alone, this wine is gulpable and hedonistic!
