GOOD not great. A little hot and flat. Needs a little more distinguished character. Soft black fruits.

The nose reminds me of Spain. On the palate - cloves, licorice, baked strawberries, cherries, herbs and spice. Very tannic. Enjoyable, but not loving it the way I usually love our wines. Hmm. #drycreekvalley #grenache #mataro #mourvedre

OK, but a bit too much American oak for my taste

2013 #delicious and rewarding considering the youth of the vines. Earthy black fruit and spice. Built, but perhaps a bit awkward at the moment.

Only 28 barrels of this wine made. This wine has just the right balance of fruit, tannins, and spice. A very elegant finish! Love it!

Good but not as full as I was hoping for. Red hawk and gnocchi accompany

A Ridge Rhone. Mataro/Mourvèdre earthiness shines.
