    (Ridge Vineyards Geyserville) This is a very dark, deeply coloured wine - more so than any of the other Geyservilles here. This is remarkable considering it is the oldest vintage tasted. It has a dense, tarry nose, with attractive floral and perfume nuances, together with residual hints of coconut oak. To the blind taster the latter characteristic suggests, like the colour, that this wine is much younger than it really is. Full bodied and sweetly flavoured on the palate, with rich texture, tannins and balancing acidity. This is wonderful stuff, and seems far more impressive tonight than when I last tasted it almost a year ago, when I rated it merely as 'good'. I think this may in part, at least, be related to tasting context.

    (Ridge Vineyards Geyserville) This wine has a similar dark and dense purple colour. Similar character on the nose also, with the aromas of sweet oak and a rich vein of black fruit. Likewise, the palate is a combination of spicy, vanillin oak and lots of sweet, lovely fruit.
