    September 20, 2017 - A rather closed showing today. Some hints of smoke and meat mixed the red fruits. Typical Ridge cab profile. Rather narrow and structured on the palate, with the acidity to the fore and tannins on the back end. Needs a little more time to integrate the structure. Awkward but promising.

    September 4, 2017 - Much improved from 17 months ago. The nose has developed a greater floral compexity (violets, spring flowers, cherry blossoms) and the purity of fruit on the palate is unlike any wine I've had in years, bringing dark cherries, blackcurrant, and fresh blackberries just bursting in your mouth. This wine exhibits laser precision, with ripe fruit, juicy acidity, and refined tannins all calibrated near perfectly for a minimalist, rustic-style drinking experience. Should improve through 2025. Technical score: 94. Enjoyment score: 95.

    August 15, 2017 - Good acidity and strong blackcurrent cassis fruit. Still got plenty of time. I'd leave a bit longer, like 3+ years. Still very primary.

    July 14, 2017 - From 375. Decanted 1 hour, slow ox 6 hours. Opaque to deep mahogany edge. Cassis, plum, cherry dill and cedar. Tastes of cherry (moslty) and black currants. Acidic and mouth watering, great balance. Tannin present in good measure. Long finish. Drinking well from 375 now, but has many, many years to go to be mature.
