2004 Ridge Zinfandel Ponzo Vineyard

Russian River Valley more

Wine aging excellently. Not a giant Amador type fruit bomb but a more Rhonish classically balanced wine, with cherries, and rasberies, a touch a smoky oak, a hint of orange peel.

Double decanted then tasted immediately. Red cherry, herbal notes, cream, beef fat, sweet spice, slight plum. More of the same on the palate, silky, slightly drying tannins, medium plus length. Okay

Polished oak, red over black currant and cherry and plum, spice. In the mouth sweet fruit, then talc textured tannin, fruit persists and introduces a slight herbaceous note. Okay.

Wonderful immediately after opening, then closed up about 30 minutes later (bright cherry finish!). Tried it again an hour or so later and it had opened up again, but this time it was drinking remarkably differently. Overall enjoyable, except for the 30-90 minute period :-)

Red/black cherry and plum. Fruit kind of fades on a short finish.

A little disappointing. Tasted blind against 3 other 2008's that shouldn't have been better but they were. Just struggled to find the fruit here, very short finish. Some tannins here but more on the chalky side. Hmmm......

Let breathe one hour. Fruit forward. Lots of spice. Also showing some considerable heat. Didn't love the finish. Bottle didnt show as well as others. Thus was tart and hot. Just okay.

Big black cherry and chocolate on the palate with firm, thick, chewy tannins. This one definitely needed decanting but the flavor is there. I'm liking this a little better than what the rest of the crowd has said so far.

Red/black cherry with some plum notes. Nice spice to it...cinnamon, almost clove. Good acidity and finish. Tasted blind against the Roar and Loring version, this came out on top.

Red cherry and blackberry fruit with subtle cola notes. Nice spice to it and good acidity. Tasted blind against the Roar and Siduri versions that had very similar profiles, this was my second favorite behind the Siduri.

First time with this winery based upon recommendation and very pleased. Tasted blind against a couple other GSM's in Paso and this showed very nicely with black cherry, blackberry fruit with a nice chocolate presence. Very seamless wine that seemed to get better throughout the evening.

This is a medium bodied, beautiful ruby colored Zin. Fresh cherry and raspberry on the nose. More juicy than dry, with a strawberry and smoky raspberry mouth. A little mocha in the middle with a smoky tobacco medium finish.

2012 The Buccaneer Zinfandel

7/27/2015 - nfurlong Likes this wine: 90 points

Deep ruby color. Loads of ripe berry fruit in the nose, including huge bunches of red raspberries and cherries. Taste of sweet ripe cherries, red and black raspberries, golden apples. Very soft tannins, an absolutely delightful sipper! Uncomplicated, but nice acids to go with the ripe fruit. Quite a surprise for the price!

Absurdly good for $8. Yup, delicious 8 buck chardonnay. Simple but well done with some light tropical fruit flavors along with butterscotch and a medium weight to it all. Don't remember the abv but I think its on the low side as putting a big dent in this bottle did not put a big dent in my head. Did I mention that you can get this for $8?

Smooth, medium to big body, good fruit, tannin softening. Nice wine, good with chicken. Should last a couple more years and the aroma will improve. Solid effort for the middle wine from Navarro.

Nothing special, just an OK zin on the lower end of the price range. Not overly jammy. Didn't turn sour after being open for a few hours this time compared to the one a year ago.

A Fine frame and savory palate of juicy meat and berry, in the lightest of manners. Long and well-strewn, there is a lovely delicate quality that echoes. Drink 2017 - 2026.
