Smooth and approachable. Not overly jammy but very well structured. This almost doesnโ€™t drink like 100% Zinfandel. Seems more like a very well balanced and established fruit forward cab. Excellent wine nonetheless!

The East Bench Zinfandel is always a step up from the Three Valleys but without the age-ability or complexity of the Lytton Springs or Geyserville. This one is just at the front end of its drinking window and will likely show more in six months or so.

Very nice wet subtle, less jam than other ridge zin blends, rich red color, the layering is really great, rustic, super balanced, just jam with all types of berries mostly raspberry and strawberry
