2004 Bodegas El Nido Jumilla Clio Red Blend

Ripe, lush, silky, fully mature. Full of big, bright, soft fruit with lots of floral notes, soy and tobacco, dark chocolate. This is what you'd call hedonistic wine, but there is enough feminine delicacy and complexity that it is quite interesting as well. Drinking at peak with fully resolved tannins, this has enough stuffing to last quite a while--5 years no problem and perhaps 10 before it fades. This wine should be a popular attention grabber.

2015 Domaine Lafage Carignan Tessellae Vieilles Vignes Vin de Pays des CĂ´tes Catalanes

Clear, clean with dark fruit but light bodied, dark cutting acid, orange peel, black olive. Tobacco, herbs. Very nice, a bit simple and not a wine destined for long age. But very nice balance between fruit and acid, refreshing. A very nice example of Carignan. I'd buy this again ($20).

2006 Ridge Lytton Springs Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel Blend, Zinfandel

Very nice, round, full. This is a really nice bottle of wine. Fully mature, missing some of that youthful energy, but replaced it with good secondary flavors.

2012 Ridge Carignane Buchignani Ranch Sonoma County

Great firm dark fruit with cutting acid, tight berry, smoke, coffee and earth. I really love this wine, especially with bright acidic food. Great for the price. Must buy more to have around the house.

2010 Ridge Monte Bello Santa Cruz Mountains Red Bordeaux Blend

Tasting at Ridge Lytton (Ridge Lytton Springs): Stiff, young, tight with dark tannic high toned acid. Charred french oak. Needs a lot of age. Excellent potential.
