    February 17, 2020 - Expressive and open on the nose - notes of liquorice, dark fruit, spices. Concentrated and generous. On the palate well balanced, good density and concentration, fresh, nicely structured, good length. Drink or keep, no rush. 91-93

    November 27, 2019 - My last bottle from 12 and probably the best yet. The initial drinking window suggested was hopelessly young, and the wine was at that stage frankly underwhelming. But with 10+ years this has really come into its own, with some fading fruit, rich black olive and gentle spice, and a hint of licorice on the finish - beautifully balanced!

    August 9, 2019 - Opened with dull aromas of barrel funk and minimal fruit. Definitely not corked but very closed down. It took about 2 hours for the wine to start opening up and we probably didn't wait long enough for it to develop fully.
    Drinkable but not in the league we expected a Ridge LS to exemplify.

    August 4, 2019 - Cellaraid Discovery Box; 5/19/2017-1/2/2020 (Delivered to Home): Somewhat like a black-green depth of leaves and liquorice on the nose. Continues to have this huge depth on the palate, intense and some resolved tannins, yet the acid is still mouth-watering. Liquorice, plum, cassis, and some savoury meats and nuttiness, and mocha. Great complexity!
