    October 10, 2019 - Has improved since my last tasting in 2017. PNP.

    Dark red color, no sediment. Blackberry, plum, briary, mint and baking spice on nose. On palate, black cherry, blackberry with touch of blueberry(?). Medium+ body, medium tannins, long finish - structure is up to the fruit - big for this producer but it works very well. Really enjoyed. 92-93 range.

    August 14, 2019 - A bit richer than I expect from Ridge so I knocked down a point or two. Nice Zin, but with Ridge I expect great balance and not point garnering richness that detracts from its freshness and equilibrium.

    July 22, 2019 - This wine is holding up well. Has some oakiness to it along with tannins. The Petit Sirah and Carignane adds to the complexity. Nice dark color. I'm sorry that I only have one bottle left.

    July 20, 2019 - semi-opaque purple. A: black fruit, graphite, tobacco, brush. F: black fruits, bit of new oak, chewy tannin. Medium plus acid, med length. Really nice wine that I was convinced it was a mountain napa cabernet – this is cool stuff and the most impressive Ridge wine I have had to date. Seriously calls my blind tasting into question!

    July 6, 2019 - much of a muchness with my previous tasting but this one was also considerably more peppery. Nice with Osso Bucco.
