(64% zinfandel, 20% carignane, 12% petite sirah and 2% each of alicante bouschet and mataro): Glass-staining ruby. Ripe cherry and blackberry aromas are complicated by suggestions of mace, star anise and smoky herbs. Sweet dark fruit flavors pick up a refreshingly bitter quality with air, along with a note of candied violet. Spicy and broad on the finish, which clings with impressive sweetness and persistence. This wine drinks well now, especially with a bit of aeration. (JR)

Really delicious. Opens with a smoky fruit nose. At first, this more remniscient of Chinon than California zinfandel. Great acidity. Classic zinfandel fruit starts to come out with lots of air.

About This Producer


Ridge Vineyards, known for its stellar reds, began when San Francisco doctor Osea Perrone bought 180 acres of land near the top of Monte Bello Ridge in California's Santa Cruz Mountains. The cellar, and present-day production site, was built into the mountainside on three levels. After success with several Cabernet Sauvignon vintages in the 1940s, the Perrone family decided to buy the terraces back and began producing high quality Zinfandels and Cabernet. By the '60s, Ridge was a 45-acre vineyard and produced its first Geyserville Zinfandel. Today, Ridge also has vineyards in Sonoma and Paso Robles. While Cabernet and Zinfandel make up most of Ridge's production, small amounts of Carignane, Syrah, Grenache, and Petite Syrah are also grown.
