  • W osso bucco @ dinner with John and Lou in JH. First guests. This was perfect match with the meal. This is a very elegant wine and was a very good match with dinner. We decanted 2 hrs. Gorgeous zin color, on the nose pure zin but not that juicy stuff that you often get. On palate great zin body thatclearly has matured and is showing all. Great dark berry/spiced finish. We got this wine as part of Zin club shipment.

  • Jammy zin with a little heat when first opened. This mellowed after 30 mins or so. Overall nice medium body wine, nice tannin structure (nothing over the top.)

  • prune and stewed plum; plenty of fruit but a bit ponderous and flabby; no reason to hold

  • This wine is drinking well. Perfect fruit and spice with a long finish to accompany grilled pork ribs that had some spice and moderate bbq sauce at the end. Wish we bought more!

  • The third of a 2006 Ridge Zinfandel horizontal we tasted on Christmas day. My least favorite of three, ranking well behind the Nervo and Pagani Ranch. This wine is 95% Zinfandel/5% Petite Sirah. The apearance was purple, but slightly less purple than the other Ridge wines I had today (I'm guessing that's due to this wine having the greatest percentage of Zinfandel). Much more oak and wood on the nose than fruit. I thought this wine tasted a little bitter. Blackberry was present with sharper tannins. The finish was shorter than the first two. Not bad, but trails the other Ridge wines I mentioned above in the nose, palate, and finish.
