Nose: Really complex aromas of spiced apple, caramel, fig and pear. Palate: Very evolved but still a good acidity presence with fig flavors, nuts and pineapple showing. Spicy finish is medium to long. This is very balanced and drinking at peak right now IMO. Drink up now and over the next 6-9 months. Solid effort from Ridge.
This is a parcel selection, and is intended for longevity and complexity. It is more vibrant than the Jimsomore, and has a bright acidity and is refreshingly ful of stone fruit and Meyer lemons, with some tropical influences.
Wow, what an interesting wine. My first Ridge chard. Nice nose of florals and minerals. Incredible acidity for a chard, which it a bit shocking at first sip, and then becomes a wonderful treat at it sinks in. Lots of complexity going on, with wet stone, hay, apple, pear, peach. Clearly built for the long haul, but feel free to back up the truck.
