1997 Ridge Vineyards Santa Cruz Mountains Merlot

SKU #310403 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Medium red-ruby. Superripe currant and black raspberry aromas hint at raisiny surmaturite. Then surprisingly juicy and leanish in the mouth, with juicy red berry and licorice flavors and firm acids. Finishes with slightly dry-edged but light tannins and a hint of greenness.  (5/2000)

K&L Notes

According to the Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine: "From the same site as Ridge's most prestigious Cabernets, this solid Merlot delivers plenty of substance and savor. Although slightly skewed to sweet oak spice and elements of loamy earth, the wine is nicely fruited in mid-palate before running into a fair bit of puckery tannins along the way. Be patient for the five or six years of age it seems to need." (09/2000)
