    April 25, 2020 - It went amazingly with Chipotle Citrus rub on a Flank Steak. Smooth, vibrant and rich. Great QPR

    March 26, 2020 - Popped and poured, no decant. Incredible color and depth in the glass. This wine is loaded and not giving up much character or concentration despite being eleven years old. Another big hitter and winner from Ridge. The fruit is big, still full of life and extremely alive and deep and rich. These wines tend to age so well and this Ponzo is no different. Considering the reasonable price, people should be stocking up on these beauties, because there is no better zinfandel on the market.

    December 8, 2019 - Well balanced, jammy, on the way down and would drink NOW

    November 2, 2019 - Popped and poured. Lived up to its expectations.
    The wine looks purple colored. The legs are slow. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like blackberry.
    It tastes like blackberry and black currant (cassis). The body is full. The wine has smooth texture. The wine finishes long. The wine has medium acidity.
