Ok, not bad, not particularly good.

2002 Ridge Home Ranch Santa Cruz Mountains Red Bordeaux Blend (view label images)
Delicious, currant, tea, long finish, a burgundy color.
Red
Very good, opened up like a fruit bomb, air moderated that and complexity and aroma developed, would be a good wine to keep for a while in the cellar.
White
Crisp without being tart, lemon, mineralty, very nice.
Red
Better than the last bottle, aromatic, blueberries, rich, and soft.
White
Crisp, racy, green apple nose, apple and lemon on palate, some bit of candy or desert I can't identify, very delicious.
Red
Red berries, silky tannins, notes of black tea, balanced, very good.
White - Sweet/Dessert
Very good, like a youngish tawny port, but less cloyingly sweet, more delicate aroma, color is tawny will a tinge of pink, very nice.

Good wine, dark fruit, almost understated, but more lively with air

2018 Linden Rosé Virginia Rosé Blend (view label images)
Delicious, delicate fragrance, delicate fruit paired with crisp acidity and some mineralty.

Quite a good wine, lots of nuance, complex bouquet, will but some more but give it air, seemed to open up with time.

Pretty good, lively fruit, decent overall, not anything to seek out.
Red
Ok wine, restrained fruit, good balance, air helped, not something to seek out.
Red
Big, ripe, full bodied and tannic, felt too young, not subtle, quite a mouthful.
Rosé
Fully dry, subtle fruit, balanced acidity, a contrast from many sweet-tart roses.
Red
Very ripe, dark fruit; quite dry with a nice tannic structure, herbal and earthy.
Red
Very good, while I did not keep detailed notes, it was better than the Canoe Ridge Merlot, drank the same evening.
Red
Dark fruit, took a lot of air for fine tannins to emerge, a very nice wine, but lacked nuance I'd expect for the price, good wine, bad QPR.

Not particularly notable, pleasant enough, but not distinguished.
