Much better than the Pagani Ranch zin. Balanced. Dark fruits, graphite, and spice. Very good.

We are not a Zinfandel fans, but Ridge produces a stellar example.
Pop'd and poured and this bad boy was singing from the get-go. It has a fresh, opulent perfume.
On the palette, loads of cherries and ripe red fruits. Tannins are pronounced. Finishes long and sweet. Zinfandel with a sprinkle of petite syrah (which adds an upright structure). Neither lithe or cloying, this is a wonderful wine.

Day 2 - The wine has stood still. It has slightly relaxed, but the acid, tannins and texture are just like they were yesterday. I'm impressed!

Was rather disappointed, I think I’ll stick with Lytton Springs.

Very delicate note of redcurrants and linze torte.
The palette is concentrated, but not overly extracted. Super weight and texture. Nice upright tannins, finishing with blackcurrants and a hint of cinnamon.

Cool climate zinfandel + seven percent petite sirah = lovely old world flavor profile
