    July 5, 2021 - Drinking very well after a one hour double decant. Nice balance, oak notes integrated and fruit prominent. Great complement to a grilled steak on July 4th.

    June 23, 2021 - From split- this only needs about 20 min in glass to open up, a pleasant wine with no rough edges and certainly a crowd pleaser. Lacks complexity and age worthiness, but that’s ok.
    This is in or near its prime and should drink well for another 5 years.

    June 16, 2021 - Prominent red and black fruits, cassis, vanilla. Short decant. Juicier than expected with rustic minerality and moderate tannins. Became more balanced with air time. Paired well with top sirloin steak. Holding remaining bottle for a couple more years.

    May 5, 2021 - My first taste of a Ridge. Very unique nose of mint/eucalyptus and maybe some sage/clove. After 30 minutes of air the palate is really impressive. Sensual and precise and a long and complex finish. The fruit purity is one of a kind as well, blueberry and cassis mainly. More BDX oriented than Cali. Can't wait to try a Monte Bello!!
