“unquestionably the biggest wine we make”. Black fruit, with some raspberries, bright and dark!Labeled as 15.3 abv, this wine is not hot at all. The oak doesn’t stand out, fruit is dense, great texture, really good wine. A beast, but not unruly.

In a good spot right now. Fully resolved tannins, pleasant plum and aged Christmas fruit cake flavors.

Super concentrated zin. Probably better suited to fall/winter dishes.

Solid on Sunday with steaks. Seemingly bordelaise with fine grained but persistent tannin and a firm mouthfeel. Today it is feeling tired and flat. Best to drink remaining bottles sooner than later.

Unfortunately, badly corked. Only my second corked bottle of Ridge in 40 years.

Berry black current and little Carmel. Can't beat a Ridge Zinfandel.
