Pagani Ranch Sonoma Valley Zinfandel Blend 2019

Hard to not drink young…ripe, complex, balanced. I admit to loving Zinfandel with food, and Ridge is right at the top. Blackberry, cherry, plum…noticeably tannic, but works like a charm with my renowned six-hour pasta fagiole and a healthy slug of quintarelli olive oil. Zin and pasta, zin and burgers, zin and ribs…just YUM! — 23 days ago

Three Valleys Sonoma County Zinfandel Blend 2020

Round five of blind tasting and we all missed on this. I think a Zinfandel blend is cruel. I swore this was a Sonoma Cab… all those blended varieties proved tricky and the Zinfandel doesn’t stand out on its own. Dark ruby red with dark over ripened and jammy fruits. Smells hot. Also VANILLA. Say that five times. Has some nice bell pepper and green notes, some eucalyptus, balsamic, and a touch of mint. Low tannic levels, moderate acid and body. It’s delicious but tripped us up. — 10 days ago

Too early, these are 8-12 year wines to appreciate

Agree @Paul T- Huntington Beach but I didn’t get to choose for the tasting. In any case, it does seem drinkable now, but certainly has miles to go!

Rattlesnake Ridge Howell Mountain Zinfandel 2010

Great wine for a cold winter’s night. 16.1% to ‘warm the soul’, although the heat was not prevalent. Excellent fruit. Do not drink in months without an “r”. 😎 — 9 days ago

Estate Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2019

Blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot, from Monte Bello Vineyard, deep Ruby with purple edges, aromas of dark berry fruits, sweet spice and toasty oak. On the palate flavors of blackberry, black cherry and ripe blueberry with vanilla, cedar and tobacco. Fine defined tannins, long finish ending with fruit, toasty and earthy notes. Nice! — 17 days ago
