Great juice. and still in outstanding condition. Lovely low alcohol wine, showing purest shimmering fruit, very soft tannins and juicy finish. It doesn't hit you over the head, and you don't really notice how good it is until you realize that you just drank nearly the entire bottle over dinner. Mocks the modern trend of overripe, highly extracted fruit bombs. Ridge, please keep on making them just like this!
