Ridge Vineyards

Ponzo Vineyard Zinfandel Blend 2016

A blend of 97% Zin and 3% Petite Sirah, dark Ruby with purple edges. Ridge's history begins in 1885, when Osea Perrone, a doctor and member of San Fran’s Italian community, bought 180 acres near the top of Monte Bello Ridge and planted vines. Aromas of rich dark fruits with herb spice notes. On the palate cherry and raspberry flavors with some vanilla oak and pepper spice. Firm yet soft tannins, medium finish, good mouthfeel ending with spicy fruit character. Nice! — 2 years ago

Benito Dusi Ranch Paso Robles Zinfandel 2016

History begins in 1885, when Osea Perrone, a doctor in San Francisco's Italian community, bought 180 acres near the top of Monte Bello Ridge in the Santa Cruz Mountains. This is 100% Zin! Deep red almost purple. Aromas of cherry fruit and unmistakable Zin spice! In the palate, blackberry and cherry flavors with peppery herb spice integrated with dusty tannins. Lively acidity shows up in the medium finish ending with a big fruit finish. Nice! — 4 years ago

Riserva Montefico Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2013

DeeeLish! Definitely a delicate version of Nebbiolo. Great nose. Medium tannins. Nice fruit. But not as fruit forward as the Elio Altare we also had at dinner. I need to try more of his single vineyard wines. — 3 years ago
