The perfect wine before a Tool concert. Distinctly intense and so harmonious.

50/50 cab/syrah, new worldy and would definitely not be for the traditionalist, but clearly well made. Lots of fruit/wifey enjoyed it..

Opaque violet color with very appealing baked and fresh dark fruit, smoke,marzipan and violet aromas. On the palate, it's full-bodied, and well structured, with very good acidity, dusty well integrated tannins and a supple texture. It shows ample high-toned red currant, baked blackberry, black raspberry, spice and vanilla flavors with a roast coffee finis. 14.5% alcohol. A blend of Cab and Syrah. The Cab sourced from the Betchart Vineyard, directly across the road from Ridge's world famous Monte Bello vineyard, at 2,200 feet of elevation above Cupertino. The Syrah is from Coastview Vineyard at 2,300 feet in the Gabilan Mountains.

In perfect shape... 2007 release! Smooth, silky and pure awesomeness. All is so well integrated. Best Big Basin ever tasted. I hope I would have some more.
