At home with Valerie, Meredith and Eileen. Last bottle of this stash, drank after a nice Bordeaux to mix it up.
Color still a young maroon/purple. Wine is holding up well. Picked up the dark fruits, jam, oak/vanilla on the nose along with a burnt sugar, caramel note. Texture is noteable in this wine, smooth and creamy. Palate of ripe blackberry, spice, cedar, tea and blueberry. Medium finish.
Great wine, really flavorful and terrific pairing with anything off the grill. Ridge Zins do not dissapoint
Great BBQ wine. Had with a chipotle Venison Burger. Rich chewy mouth feel. Moderate ABV for. Zin based wine. A bit jammy of the black fruit variety with spices like clove and pepper. Very enjoyable and great with the food.
Crimson color with appealing ripe mixed black and red fruits, spice, bramble and a hint of leather aromas. On the palate, it's medium-bodied with soft well integrated sweet tannins, , very good acidity and plum, blackberry, black cherry, and spice finish and a lingering satisfying finish.
