Excellent Rhone-styled wine with aromas and flavors of raspberry, blueberry and black pepper (though the black pepper may have something to do with the pepper-crusted tuna being eaten at the same time). Like all Ridge wines, full-bodied, well-balanced, and fruit-driven. Ridge's Grenache seems to get better every year. (HK) - WB Team 2000-06-04
