One of my friends out in Petaluma mentioned to me that he really liked what Ritchie Creek was still doing these days with their cabernets and was kind enough to get the winery to send me samples. I must say that he was spot on with his comments about the 'old school' wines still being made here and this was an excellent cabernet in the making. The 2007 Estate cab from Ritchie Creek comes in at a very civilized 13.8 percent ABV and offers up a classic, old school nose of cassis, black cherries, a touch of menthol, smoke, fresh herbs, gentle, youthful tariness, a nice base of soil and a stylish base of cedary new wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and nicely reserved, with a fine core of fruit, ripe tannins, lovely focus and balance and a very long, primary and most promising finish. This still needs several years of cellaring to fully blossom and should age very well indeed. Fine juice. (Drink between 2018-2040) 92+ points
