Tried the new realease 2013 at Ridge yesterday and decided to have a bottle early. Lovely ripe plum and blackberry with sweet spice. Already good and look forward to trying as it ages more.

Wild berries and plums and oddly enough, some tropical notes of mango along with dried apricot. Juicy and layered.

Big and ripe for Ridge, but hey, it's Paso. Nice for the style.

Red roses, cherries, hint of cocoa. On the palate, a little sweetness and a bit if cherry put.

Color: Garnet with dark purple tinge
Nose: heavy turpentine with faint mulch
Taste: classic Zin profile. Flash of pepper, black cherry, finishing with oily leathery tannin. Good structure. Long finish. Excellent with Challerhocker cheese.

Wonderful Zinfandel! Yes I cannot kick the Zin habit and with this one, I am glad I did not quit. Not overly fruity and jammy. Great balance of fruit and tanin.
