Dusty, dried red fruit with buckets of spice. Subtle tannin and silky texture. Age treats Ridge so well. This has years of life left but drinking beautifully now.

2005 in 3 liter. Perhaps close to its peak; layered, evolving plum and berries, some dried. Some spice and wind-blown seaside plants. Long. #delicious and perfect with the 14-pound lobster @ridgevineyards

More perfumed and delicate than the geyserville of the same vintage. Still, ruddy delicious.

More oak forward (even for Ridge) than expected; that said, lovely with a decant along with brisket.

I think Ridge is 247 and 1 with me. And the bad bottle they replaced. They are a flagship.

Huge, modern style but quite enjoyable with bold food flavors. Legit acidity and some tannin make this balanced and an impressive showing.

Folks at Ridge pulled out some Estate cab, Montebello, and this 05 Lytton Springs from the cellar. Perfect amount of age, great complexity and aromatics right now.
