Saturday with a beautiful 2010 Pagani Ranch Zinfandel from @ridgevineyards in California, USA 🇺🇲 🍷The wine is a blend of 82% Zinfandel, 16% Alicante Bouschet, and 2% Petit Sirah. 14.9% ABV.
Intense aromas of raspberries, blackberries, cherry and some red currant on the nose. It also delivers notes of vanilla, spices and some thyme. It is smooth in the palate with a long finish. Medium-plus tannins and acidity. Still a great bottle! 🍷
From the vineyard's history: "Since 1991, Ridge has made zinfandel from the old Pagani vineyard on the east-facing side of Sonoma Valley. Almost all the vines here were planted more than a hundred years ago." Cheers! 🍷

Vintage 2015 / 74% zinfandel 16% petit shiraz 8% carignan 2% matador = mourvedre. Dark colour with cardinalred rim. A beneficent and seductive smell. Lots of cedar, marzipan, chocolate, spicyness too. Velvety in the mouth but with much power beneath. #ridge #zinfandel #sonomacounty Paired with beef tenderloin salsify and mushrooms. — 3 years ago
