Sunday, October 21, 2012 - Age has dialed back the 14.5abv but then again ridge neer really shows its abv for the most part. This could have gone another few years but it wouldnt have gained anything.
Shows some menthol on the nose initially giving way to plums and a touch of cedar. Great integration of tannins and acidity. I doubt youd be able to peg this as zinfandel.
At 19 years old, shows what californian zin can do when done right.
