2018 Ridge Gonsalves Mataro (Contra Costa County). This is delicious but flirts with a bit of underripeness (in a good way). Nose has a slight vegetal note (as my brother pointed out), but also has vanilla and nice ripe cherry. No inderripeness in the mouth, with great acid/fruit balance. Delicious and a unique take in that it avoids blowsey jamminess that some wineries get from warm Contra Costa County fruit.
