Double decanted for one hour; no sediment. Bright medium ruby color. Briary nose with a hint of vanilla. Medium-bodied tart cherries on the palate with a good level of acids, and with well-integrated tannins on the medium-length finish. A pleasant wine with a good QPR at $25. Should drink-up my remainder within this year.
Light purple. Cigar tobacco, licorice, strawberry and mineral on the nose . Drank over two hours. Black raspberry, sage, grilled meat, nicely done acidity, elegant but flavorable. Drinking well now, but should continue to do well for years to come. Drank with pasta and a red sauce. Held up to the food as well as Italian wines. Ridge consistently makes good Zins.
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.
