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.

A nice field blend. Dark plum, chocolate, black tea, blackberry. High tannins and full body with balanced palate from start to finish.

Too early to drink. Good, but wait for a few years or taking time to drink. 2017 @1870, Eva - BBQ, 190916-191003

2015. Excellent right out of the bottle, didn’t even need to breathe. Snappy and crisp but a robust and confident base to balance out the fruitiness. Will repurchase.
