Switchback Ridge

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Ron R

As a Brit, fish, chips and mushy peas is my signature dish .Yes, the mushy came from a can, which is the primary source. We started with a rosé, but we are now on Switchback, which is opulent and correct. — 14 days ago

@Mark Turner, it’s impressive, especially if you can get it at a reasonable price.

Monte Bello Ridge California Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

From a mini vertical of Monte Bello at a friend’s house. This 08 is easily the most concentrated of the 06, 07, 08. A bit of lemony oak is still yet to integrate on the nose, but all the components are there. Best concentration of the bunch. The fruit is rich and pure and the tannins and acids are really in nice balance. Give this 5 more years. — 8 days ago

D122 Pinot Noir 2013

Wow, the six years since my last btl have really been generous to this wine. Absolutely lovely light-styled PN now. On the nose: perfumed red fruit, loads of stony minerality, soft rose hips, a hint of blood orange..fantastic aromatic complexity and still rather primary. On the palate: excellent density, very nice acidity and weight, with more spicy red fruit and lots of stony notes. Lovely soft spice and very soft tannin on the elegant finish. This is fantastic now, and seems like it will age very gracefully, if this btl is representative. Yum! — 4 days ago

Ponzo Vineyard Zinfandel Blend 2015

Nose has ripe plum, summer blackberries, moist garden soil, black cherry, faint eucalyptus and mahogany shavings.

Palate has ripe black cherry, ripe blackberry, ripe plum skin, faint milk chocolate with light tannins. Silky smooth, long finish, great balance of dark fruits to acidity, in a perfect spot today. Decanted 6H.

An early Father's Day with my parents, so I don't have to compete with my Sister & Nephew's in 24 hours, plus we'll have the better wine. 🤞

Adelaida Vineyard Roussanne 2019

Very nice 100% Roussanne from Paso Robles.

Golden round fruit, grassy Paso terroir, with the structure of a barrel ferment. Fantastic and enjoyable now, but harkens for autumn notes of roasted Quail with wild rice stuffing with golden raisins, lavender, and fire roasted veg.

Enjoy over next three years, possibly more

Ridge Vineyards

Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1996

Nose has ripe blackberry, over-ripe black currant, dehydrated black cherry, moist prune, dried mint, old leather, old cedar, fresh cigar, ever so slight eucalyptus and milk chocolate powder.

Palate has velvety black fruits, blackberry/black cherry/plum, cedar, wet leather, wet volcanic rock, moist garden soil and wow what a finish, so long, so beautiful. Well cellared '96 CA should last forever! Medium tannins persist! Decanted 6H, more time would be appreciated, alas our last and only bottle, damn it.

Paired to Allen Bros. filets (Prime/Complete Trim) grilled to 127° then rested for 12m, perfectly medium rare; Toasted orzo with grilled squash and brussel sprouts with bacon. 🤤

@Peter Sultan @Josh Morgenthau Thanks, and sorry for no food companion pic, was relaxing with the parents and not thinking about a food shot; this wine pic was taken early in the morning before the sun was fully awaken.
