I have this mental stigma for some reason that all Ridge wines need to age for 10+ years or so before they are popped no matter what they are. And they are all usually quite good at this age. Yet when I finally DO open these up younger (such as this), I wonder why I wait! This wine has a nose and front palate of sweet roasted figs, tobacco, a bit of a savory note even and a hint of mushroom and soy sauce. But this wine enters medium+ bodied and gains more weight as goes to the finish. Dried herb, black cherry and red licorice to the finish. Tannins seem rather soft yet I feel that quite a bit is present here. Drink or hold!
