This site is known for brooding, structured wines that can take great patience to show well. But with the '16 Heritage bottling, Goodfellow has crafted a wine that captures the power of the wine, but marries that power to a supple, densely textured mouthfeel. It's a classic "iron fist in a velvet glove" type of wine. The fruit expression is the darker, mineral-infused and broad-shouldered type that Ribbon Ridge can produce, but in the mouth the wine already shows of a highly layered, complex and lengthy personality. The fruit flavors are essentially endless, with a finish that just keeps going and going. It is approachable now, but will age effortlessly for a decade or longer.
