Viña Alicia '07 San Alberto Syrah Luján de Cuyo. Black fruits, spicy, earthy and savory. I love the plum and blackberry notes. Perfect with enchiladas and Mexicali salad. Only issue I had was the cork broke in half. But a strainer helped get the wine into the decanter clean. — 6 years ago
One of my "go-to" California Pinots! Flavors of blueberry, dark cherry, plum, mushroom and coffee and spice. A pretty wine with a long finish. — 6 years ago
Silky tannins, blackberry, gorgeous crème de cassis. Rich but lighter body than other Caymus cabs. Pretty decent now but should improve in a few years. I see RP gives it a 96. Probably over hyped but a good buy at $55. — 6 years ago
@RidgeVineyards '06 Santa Cruz Mtn. Estate #Cabernet blend --56% Cabernet, 42% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot. Red currant, cardamom, vanilla and licorice and toasted oak. Velvety and Bordeaux-like. Sweet tannins. Needs at least an hour decant. This is a beauty! #RidgeVineyards #cuvee — 6 years ago
Elegant wine. Wild strawberry and dried dark cherry and cassis. Earthiness and tobacco give this wine the depth one would expect. Open 60-90 minutes before service. — 6 years ago
