    May 9, 2017 - Past its prime, unfortunately. Flat and dull. Should have had it at least 2 years ago.

    March 16, 2017 - A nice balanced varietally correct zin. At its peak - drink now.

    December 27, 2016 - Super good - ridin' high. Balanced, smooth, rich dark flavors. Love it. Wish I had more...

    ** Day 2 - it gets better. Completely open now, displaying bramble and spice in full effect, with a silky smooth delivery that'll keep you going back for more... This is it. This bottle demonstrates why I have an unabashed love for Zinfandel. 100%.

    May 25, 2015 - Drinking really well right now, ridge zins age really well so this is no surprise, I liked it so much I went back and cleaned out the shelf.

    January 13, 2015 - Just starting to show secondary aromas and flavors. A mild sediment on decant. 2 hours air later and the wine is soft but expressive. Tannins have become incredibly silky textured. The fruit isn't as hot as earlier bottles and the oaky background has backed off. Drinking great now but has at least another couple years of improvement left. Best Zin of the new year!
