Definitely one of the better Zinfandels I've ever had, but am just confirming the fact that I don't enjoy that grape.

Soft fruit, very modest and balanced. Subtle flavors on all sides of the tongue. The least brooding and seemingly age worthy of the new Ridges I've had recently.

Violet notes with some spice. Smooth and consistent over the few hours we had it decanted.

Happy national wine day. Ridge’s wines have always been special to me. The 2005 Lytton Springs is one of the first wines that I vividly remember back when I first got into wine. This Paso Robles Zin was very structured, Dark fruits on the nose. Blackberries, cassis, fresh cracked black pepper, hint of vanilla on palate. Nice smooth finish. Tried this at a restaurant but have 2 bottles stored away back home. Think this guy will be pretty special in 2-3 years. Can’t recall having a bad Ridge wine. One of my favorite producers for the money.

Nice and dry but with enough fruit to be just right. Sitting the deck at The Mansion and it will be perfect with the antipasto and cheese plates that are on the way.
