Your typical California Pinot. Plenty of fruit and a bit syrupy.
It’s a good wine, but I’ll take Oregon Pinots over Cali’s every single time. — 9 days ago
Pleasant surprise. Great flavors and tones. We were shocked on the fine taste at this price — 20 days ago
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! — 15 days ago
Pronounced nose with lemon cake, stone fruit, acacia, honey, some saline notes. The high ABV is easily hidden behind the concentration and balance.

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. — a day ago
One of the better Pinots as of late. — a month ago
