100% Zin. Rich with plum, mocha and blackberry notes. Classic style of Zin with high alcohol but enough fruit and acidity to keep from going over the top

Sweet berry fruit, forward nose but mild and delicate palate, pleasant frut driven finish.

Excellent wine - especially when paired with grilled beef tenderloin, caramelized onion and potato cake and sautéed asparagus. Dense but light at the same time - ripe berry, oak, bittersweet chocolate and black pepper. Lingers on the palate. Yet another fantastic Ridge wine

Every wine from Ridge I've had has been as excellent as this one. Superb clarity and strength - one for the cellar.

Bittersweet, tannic, food friendly and almost like Alsace with tire and band aid aroma. Pronounced fruit in the mid palate and a dry finish.

Tasty Zin with lush fruit and not too overt American Oak. Ridge doesn't disappoint #ridgevineyards
