Aging gracefully as do most Ridge Petite Sirahs. Spices, black fruits, vanilla, currants. Plummy nose, still dark purple to the rim, opening up and smoothing out after a 2 hour decant. Still young, and drinking beautifully. Glad I still have 5 left!
Bill's Monthly Lunch - February 2012 (Vancouver, BC): Tasted blind - dark red, darkest wine yet. New worldish nose with blue and black fruits and some vanilla coming through as well. Flavours of slightly roasted or dried fruits with spice and hints of green tobacco. The structure here is mostly resolved and this is drinking very well. Very good.
