Sparkling deep red/violet color. Deep red raspberry and dark current nose, flavors include some sweet cherry also. Some slight flowery edge to the nose. Beautifully balanced, like just about everything Ridge produces. Nice finish, slightly tannic, with still a year or two of improvement possible. But delicious now.. - WB Team 2000-09-01
