    March 8, 2019 - Perhaps not wholly integrated but another nice showing from Ridge. Fruit and plenty of alcohol, but not jammy or sweet to my palate. Nice depth and an almost Italian acidity. Drinking well, perhaps won’t improve but should keep some years more.

    August 3, 2018 - The 15.4% alcohol is obvious, but, after a bit of air, the fruit and tannins are still strong enough to make it interesting. Still tastes like a basic Ridge Zin with some extra heat.

    January 12, 2018 - Dan served to poker game w jambalaya. Huge hit! Berry flavors. Could drink even later.

    September 17, 2017 - Pretty great for a zin. Not overwhelmed by alcohol, retaining some nuance not lost to jam. Really OK, some tannins tasted, a slight bit of oak (but not too much), fruit is apparent. No bricking so I suspect this wine will stand another 3-4 years of cellaring if called on to so be stored. Pepper. Did I mention pepper? Slight pepper per a medium-bodied zin's best characteristic, IMHO.
