I normally like the West Ridge and its more subtle notes over the East Ridge, but this bottle of East Ridge was just fantastic. It was so very deep and yet still energetic and full of soaring, bright clean red fruits, combined with a lovely long finish. My wife and I basically raced each other to the bottom of this bottle. — a month ago
The nose was soaring on the first pop. Fresh floral & citrus aromatics. This opened up with a watercress pesto pasta. The earthiness of the dish brought forward some rich apricot & tropical notes. The weight was effortless here & plenty of acidity lifted this wine beautifully. — 6 months ago
Galloni was spot on here with his 93 pts. The soaring aromatics on this are ethereal. Gobs of young fresh fruit in abundance in a mid-weight, translucent wine. Has a little turpentine hint on the nose and a brambly strawberry character in the mid palate that I find fascinating. Drinks like a California Vacqueyras. Bravo 👏 — 7 months ago
A wine of immense pedigree and stature, the 2018 Syrah Colson Canyon Vineyard captures the essence of Joey Tensley's style. Soaring aromatics, dense fruit and beams of tannin shape a Syrah of intense richness and savory depth. The Colson Canyon Syrah is a wine of tremendous dimension that gets better and better with time in the glass. Cedar, sweet pipe tobacco, iron and bright red fruit build into the palate-staining finish. All I can say is: Wow!! (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, August 2020)

The 2016 Saffredi is even better from bottle than it was from barrel - and that is saying a lot. A ton, in fact. Soaring in its concentration and scale, the 2016 boasts superb intensity in all of its dimensions. Readers who want to understand how magical the 2016 is will find the answer here. Macerated dark cherry, espresso, mint, lavender and leather add layers of nuance, but it is the wine's inner sweetness and extraordinary balance that stand out most. The 2016 is a pure and total pleasure bomb; that's all there is to it. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, March 2020)

This Happened. Soaring aromatics, tremendous complexity and crazy expressive. Red raspberries, exotic spices, roses, fine acidity and an energetic and ample mid-palate with a seamless balance and a finish for days. Out of body experience at Quince at The Farm ✨💫 — 3 months ago
Gorgeous Stunning aromatics on this: soaring & decadent kirsch liqueur, blueberry pie, spice cake, cedar, vanilla, pipe tobacco, coconut and so much more. Deep dark dense and oh so plush, velvety soft caressing tannins and lubricating acidity. Only very slight bricking, this has many more years ahead: straddling the line between traditional & new international style Rioja - .2 bump for $20 price tag. Buy a case of this stuff — 3 months ago
A huge, meaty nose with the classic hint of blackberry bramble.
A little lively at first, so this one needs air. Delicious layers of candied fruit. Pomegranate juice, green apple, fresh hay with bits of life still left. Soaring acidity of Jolly rancher red, blue and green all mixed together.
This is delicious.
Stay healthy by drinking wine, friends. 🍷 — 7 months ago
