    September 30, 2021 - Easy drinking wine that pairs nicely with most foods. A touch on the jammy side but a decent value wine, especially when dining out at a steakhouse where the wine list is marked up 3x retail.

    September 25, 2021 - Drank over the course of 2 hours. Definitely needed some air. All primary notes. Day 2 the secondary notes started to show. Enjoyable now, but I will probably wait longer before opening to shorten the wait time.

    August 31, 2021 - Nicely evolved - the savory side of California zin.

    July 22, 2021 - Very fruit forward, plummy, jammy. Tannins seemed well resolved initially, but more present on second day. Opened to pair with meat pies, some bites with a Sriracha sauce. Worked well with the pies, not at all with the hot sauce.

    June 10, 2021 - It strikes me every time I drink a wine from Ridge, what a quality, and that their wines get so much better with a few years in the cellar. This is as good as a blend of zinfandel can be, wonderful dark fruit but with your acid that lifts the wine, wonderful!
