Celebrating my good friend @David L and his birthday with this 90 Ridge. Nothing short of spectacular. Has a creamy element with fruit and great balance. So classic.

Almost 20 years old and drinking just fine. Dark blue fruit, silky tannins and dusty earth and mineral on the finish. Michael Dashe had me taste it blind...I got fairly close, but guesses too young!

Wonderful wine. Blackberry, clove, slight eucalyptus on the nose. Mellowed out, bing cherry, olalieberry pie and Asian spice. Medium body, balanced tannins and acid. Seek out, drink in the next 2-5 years
