Monthly WTF wine group meet up.

Juicy, flavor packed and rich tobacco. Extracted ripe fruit...fresh squeezed blackberries and raspberries. Boysenberry too on the nose with oak. So rich and delicious on the palate with liqueur, and sweet tart. Enough acidity to keep this from being too flabby. American oak here?

4th Generation Sonoma Valley site planted from 1890-1914, 85% Zin, 10 Alicante, 3 Petit Syrah, 2 Carignane. 30 acres. Ridge has been making Pagani since 1991. Interesting wine!! Slightly oxidative at open, then showing a creamy malo'y thing, but then the cedar and caramel, black cherry...Incredibly fresh, great acid. Showing age on the nose but the fruit is pure and alive. I would drink these but might stash one for a really long time like 2028 or 2033.

For a 2008 that wasn't stored so well, it was good, but it didn't blow me away. It could have used some chill. We're in California and it's the end of May. It is warm. Room temperature is not what you should be serving your red wines at
