A complex blend of Zinfandel (74%), Petite Sirah (11%), Carignan (5%), Mataro (4%), Grenache(3%) and Syrah (3%). Medium / full body, terrific balance, frruit forward notes of black cherry, currants, plums, blueberries, licorice and tobacco. A tasty partner with backyard BBQ'ed anything. An impressive Zin blend.

Hmm...I always expect too much from Ridge. Paul Draper has made some fantastic wines. This has what you would expect in a Cali Zin: Raspberry/Strawberry jam and black pepper..good tannin and acid...but there is also a certain astringent quality here as well...like raspberry leaf tea. Overall this felt unbalanced...I would be curious to taste it again in a few years though I doubt this will aged half as well as their better wines. This is about $15 bucks south of the border. It shows.
