1970 - 1978 Ridge Zinfandels (Tom's House, Palo Alto, CA): Reserved nose, some subtle spices. Makes up for it in the mouth, just beautifully balanced and elegant. That sweet aged fruit that's common in most of these but drier than some of the others. Some floral notes and decent acidity. (my 1st, group's 1st)
