Some disagreement on this one -- some felt is was perfectly drinkable but over the hill, others actually preferred it to the '97 Ridge Sonoma Station served at the same time. Some plum fruit, but dominated by earthy, woodsy chocoloate-like flavors and a distant hint of stewed vegetables. This wine was never intended as an ager, and it is now in its decline. - WB Team 2000-11-08
