(2000 Vintage) An excellent vintage from Ribbon Ridge, our 2000 has a deep saturated ruby/purple color. Ripe black cherry, cola, and blackberry fruit dominate the bouquet. In the background a hint of spicy oak can be discerned. Still youthful, this medium to full-bodied wine has a layered palate, moderate tannin and a sweet, long finish. It is always difficult to compare one vintage to another, but 2000 may represent a hypothetical blend of 1998 and 1999. It is not as powerful, muscular or tannic as the 1998 no...

Wine Spectator(2009 Vintage) "Light and spicy, with pretty red berry and cinnamon flavors that linger against refined tannins. The flavors expand with each sip, picking up extra mineral and earth nuances, as the finish sails on unabated. It’s the length that makes this special. Drink now through 2019."
