Still alive from half bottle, but a lot more tar and savory than normal 750mls of geyserville of this age. Cassis and cigar box on the pallet.

Not my favorite Geyserville, and seems a bit further a long the curve than it should be. Still enjoyed by all.

I love Ridge!!! So it's no secret that I love their Geyserville. Delicious and balanced Zin field blend. Great acid backbone that gives lift to the dark berry and smoky fruits. Killer!

Wow! I've never had Ridge this old. Tannins fully resolved, toasted creme brulee and soft red fruits on the nose. Definitely in its final stages, and past peak, but still holding on and a very interesting showing. Lively, but somewhat sharp. I think it's mid point at 7 or 8 years old would speak to me, where it still had some grip and ferocity but was beginning to mellow out.

Not often I tuck into a rich red, but this was full of PLEASURE. Perfect red for a brisk, early sunset, Seattle November.

Even better on day two. Grapey, zippy, and hedonistic.
