Ancient Peaks Oyster Ridge 2013
The 2013 Oyster Ridge bursts out of the glass with aromas of plum, blackberry, lavender, black olive and sarsaparilla. The mouthfeel is broad and viscous, cascading across the palate with layers of boysenberry, black cherry, vanilla cream and polished oak. Trailing notes of caramel, graphite and spice emerge on a long, pure finish. Through the end, the wine is impeccably balanced, with ample juiciness and intensity harnessed by elegant structure. This wine will generously evolve in the bottle for years to come.
