1997 Ridge Geyserville

Even at 22 years old this is a lovely wine. Notes of black cherries on the nose. The palate has soft fruit, cranberries and framboise with a bit of black pepper. Smooth, fully resolved tannins, nice acidity, good balance. A bit of a bite at the back of the palate. Long lingering finish of bright red fruits and spice. Probably better a few years ago, but still an elegant wine. A-
