11 barrels produced. First ever 100% PV bottling by Ridge. Just incredible. I’ve had several bottles of this, and it pains me this was the last. An INCREDIBLE wine. — a day ago
Go Australia! Loving this petit Verdot - wonderful! This was bottle number two and followed one of my favorites and it held its own 🍷 — 13 days ago
Star bright yellow gold with chartreuse highlights. Inviting nose of ripe quince and celery. Well-structures, medium-bodies palate yields ripe pomes (quince, pear, yellow apple) and concrete mineral around firm acidity. Great with a wide range of foods, but especially rich seafood, cream sauces, and root vegetables. Drink now through 2025. — 5 days ago
I am amazed that Delectable could identify this wine - well done! This is a Rose made in Clunes in far northern NSW inland from Byron Bay dining at Harvest at Newrybar. This Rose was a quite rich bronze in colour. Interesting mix of varieties with Tempranillo, Shiraz and Durif. Very aromatic with burnt toffee and ginger notes. On the light to medium weight palate more spicy and savoury than fruit driven - with dry cherry notes in searching for a fruit descriptor. Quite a find - I didn’t know wine was made in this district and will be seeking this out for purchase. — 6 days ago
This is a nice red blend from Paso Robles. Showing Bing cherries, black currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, spices, coffee, tobacco leaf, light vegetables, pencil lead and peppercorn.
Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.
Smells like a Pinot Noir from Oregon. Doesn't taste like that though. A Very interesting wine.
A great Food wine. Needs a few hours to open up properly. A little unbalanced and better with food.
I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
A blend of 53% Tannat, 21% Zinfandel, 13% Petite Verdot and 13% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged for 18 months in oak barrels.
Next day update : it becomes balanced and enjoyable by itself.
14% alcohol by volume.

Artiste Winery Malaguena Non Vintage Santa Barbara County, California
A pretty color of dark ruby with a wide reddish rim.
Fruity nose of blueberries, red plums, cherries, oak, earth, light vanilla, vegetables, spices and black pepper.
Full bodied and soft with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with plums, cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, spices, tobacco, dark chocolates, herbs, light vegetables and peppercorn.
Medium finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a very nice Zinfandel blend from Santa Barbara County. Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel.
Nicely balanced and good by itself as a sipping wine. Could use a few more years in the bottle to mature properly.
Needs 30 minutes to open up properly and remove some of the acidity.
Tasty, tangy, soft and interesting.
I paired it with Gorgonzola cheese and crackers.
A blend of 77% Zinfandel and 23% Petit Verdot. Non Vintage, bottled in 2019.
