1999 Ridge Geyserville

The nose is quite expressive with blackberries and blueberries. Rich plum fruit on the palate with strong notes of blackberry and black cherry. Fine tannins, great acidity and balance. Finishes moderately long with dark fruits. Still giving a lot of pleasure, but fading ever so slightly. I think this will drink well for another 5 years. 68% Zin, 16% Carignane, 16% Petite Sirah. 14.8% ABV but no detectable heat. "A-"
