Despite the higher-than-usual-for-Ridge alcohol level, this wine has the typical Ridge feel of balance and reserve. Earthy Dry Creek berry fruit with undertones of spice and floral notes. Actually reminded me a bit of a Cotes du Rhone. At least in this tasting, had a feel more of correctness than liveliness or I would have rated it a point or two higher. - HK 2018-05-23
