2006 Ridge Carignane Buchignani Ranch

Sonoma County more

6/5/2015 - kosinski wrote: NR

Starting to show its age. Mostly cedar wood aromas with some cherry and plum. Low acidity with flavors of plum and garrigue. Seems to be losing structure and complexity, though still pleasant. Drink now.

2009 Ridge Carignane Buchignani Ranch

Sonoma County more

6/5/2015 - kosinski wrote: NR

Considerably more mature than when I tasted a year ago.
Aromas of wet earth and mushrooms with some berry jam.
Rich and plummy with a soft velvety texture, mature tannin and moderate acidity. Meaty notes. Some spice and minerals in the background. Nicely complex and fully mature. Good food wine. Drink now.

Unusually jammy and fruit-forward for a Ridge Zin. Not bad, but not my style. Probably a good pairing with a sweet and spicy barbecue pork dish.

Aroma: unusually floral nose with rose petal, lavender, withe pepper and orange.
Palate: meaty, spicy and tannic with floral-infused dark berry flavors. Some peppery and earthy notes. Tannins need to mature before the wine expresses its full potential. Fairly light bodied.
