    December 28, 2017 - This ridge cab franc is drinking wonderfully right now! Perfect hints of everything, green pepper, light red fruit on the nose. Ready to drink!

    August 5, 2017 - slow-oxed over a couple of hours. Significant sediment stuck on bottle wall. pours dark violet color. Nose big, oak, dark fruits, with time mild hints of herbs/green pepper. Palate surprisingly restrained compared to the nose. light oak again on palate, blackberries, juicy overall, slightest hint of coffee. no discernible tannic bite on palate, very drinkable now. 92 pts

    December 15, 2015 - Not Loire. More like a light Ridge Cab, with a bit of extra spice. Very tasty. Balanced between fruit, oak, acidity, and tannin.
