WTN: 1989 Ridge Petite Sirah York Creek

Was I surprised that this was still dark purple, dense, brambly and tannic? No I was not. That's pretty much what it was - a Petite Sirah from Ridge being true to its nature. Certainly drinkable now, and a proper companion to grilled foods on a cool summer evening. Is it going anywhere soon? Nope. It's going to sit there and glare at people for a good 15 years or more. It will never be the '71 or '74, but it is what it is supposed to be, and that's fine with me.
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.
