This is drinking beautifully. Still has some Zinfandel juiciness with a lot of cherry in the middle palate, but giving way to earth and mulch. Not as big and intricate as a Geyserville or LS but beautifully balanced.

Delicious black fruit ....raspberry at the finish as wine opens up. Chocolate and overall a bottle that can be drank with great pleasure.

Dark fruit nose with hints of caramel, coconut, mocha. Palate currently a bit shy, not a big cali cab, with lots of finesse and acidity. Need to cellar much longer to unfold.

Very pretty, aromatic, sweet yet juicy. Delicious and seemingly light weight, but grows deeper with air and deeper into the bottle. Terrific vinosity here. I think wines like this are a new direction in wine making at Ridge -- lighter and more terroir and vintage driven -- and I wholeheartedly approve.

Wow wow wow. Spearmint, strawberry, black tea, and beef aromatics. Deep color, young, stout, bay laurel like a Martha's, sweet elderberry fruit. Incredible, one of the finest Ridge wines I've had the pleasure of tasting. Someone decried this as being "too Ridge, too Draper" for what that's worth. Brilliant winemaking.

Like drinking a worn old boot. Sour, dirty, leather, and the barest hint of plum giving the only notion of fruit or sweetness. Immaculate bottle but probably not exemplary.

1981 Ridge Zinfandel Dry Late-Picked Angeli

Alexander Valley more

5/27/2015 - andtheodor wrote: 92 points

Big, spicy nose of red vines, cherry candy, some volatility, licorice, and a nosehair singeing whiff of alcohol. Palate shows a vivid "red hots" cinnamon candy aspect, licorice, strawberry, menthol coolness on the finish. Comes off fairly sweet and paired well with sweet/sour components in the food rather than just the meat. An interesting drink.

Another Ladies of May birthday party called for almost excellent Zinfandel. Drinking very nicely, dark berries, pepper and an elegant finish.

Decanted the wine and drank it over a three hour dinner. Plums, tobacco, and ink on the nose. The palate was very smooth with a lovely tea leaf after taste. It had the finness. It tasted younger than its actual vintage. The wine evolved nicely throughout the night. At one point, it tasted like a 10 year old barolo to me. In a very good drinking window now. No point to wait.

37th Annual Zinfandel Retrospective (R&D's): Aromas of raisin, red fruit and herbs. Flavors of red fruit, plum and raisin with hints of pepper in the finish. A bit more ripe and raisiny than I care for.

37th Annual Zinfandel Retrospective (R&D's): Dark crimson color. Red and purple fruit aromas with spice and plum underneath. Boysenberry, black raspberry and pepper flavors. Nice but finishes on the short side of the spectrum.

My #6, Domino's #4
Group #7, 53 pts (one 2nd place vote broke the tie with the last place wine)

37th Annual Zinfandel Retrospective (R&D's): Aromas of banana, coconut and orchard fruit. Coconut and toasted oak on the palate. Full-bodied and round, with a toasted finish. Decent fruit, but right now the oak dominates- best to let this sit a couple of years. Drink from 2017+.

This is obviously better than previously tasting a year+ ago. Tannins are resolving and this is drinking well straight from the bottle. Medium bodied. Bordeaux style with a tart quality and a stoney finish. Lots of minerals and comes across like a low alcohol wine.
