    June 3, 2019 - Still so much fruit and body. Drinking very well. Wish I had more!

    July 12, 2018 - Even young, this was basically sugar, fruit, and alcohol. To the extent that it worked, it depended on the fruit being lush enough to make the sugar palatable. The couple times I tried it young, it was hit or miss whether it worked or not and could change over a glass, let alone a bottle, as temperature changed and your body adjusted to the sugar. When it worked, it was fun. When it didn’t, it was undrinkable.

    Not working today and glad this is my last bottle.

    November 18, 2016 - A bit syrupy. Black cherry & plum predominate.

    December 27, 2015 - big plum, stewed strawberry in the nose, medium finish with a short sweetness at the end.

    Agree with previous reviewers who cited ridge bottle notes -immediately thought maybe this should be a dessert wine. This not my preferred ridge profile because it feel like syrup in my mouth and the flavor profiles dissolve quickly.

    Paired with a Belgian dark chocolate filled with black currant ganache!
