Man this vintage yielded some wonderful wines and this was no exception. Very vinous with total beef stew aromas from stock, beef tips, and peas. Reminded me of my Grandmother's kitchen, may she rest in peace. The berry fruit was mostly gone but still hanging in there. Serious wine. Great mouthfeel. I need to buy more Ridge.
Pulled from David's cellar during his engagement party. I like this. Very smooth and direct, but lean from age. Feels like it lost some volume but didn't really gain in complexity. The cassis and dark currant fruit is clear and uncomplicated. Enjoyable.
