Ridge component tasting with Brian & Brian. Tasted alongside '89 Pichon-Baron. Outstanding old California Cab.

Dark color with aromas of earth. Somewhat dried out but still has amazing length. This was tasted alongside the 1986 and was remarkably similar though more austere and less fruit. Amazing wine for its age.

No doubt once a very good wine, but past its prime. Drinkable but grown a bit flabby.

Disappointing. Sort of green. Maybe it will get better.

Wow - what a great wine this proved to be! It was as close to perfection for a California cabernet as I can imagine. Rich, dense fruit, awesome nose and lingering finish that lasted all evening. Terrific!

his extraordinary wine is backward and unevolved, but even neophytes will recognize its potential greatness. The opaque, saturated, dark purple color reveals no sign of age. The huge, smoky, oaky, blackcurrant, herb, and vanillin-scented nose only hints at what will be achieved with further evolution. Sweet, decadently rich, dense, highly extracted flavors are wrapped around a full-bodied, chewy, super-concentrated, moderately tannic wine that, ideally, needs 7-8 more years of cellaring. It is a 25 to 30 year California Cabernet Sauvignon that is just beginning to become civilized. A potential legend in the making!

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
