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
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
So good! Like a stronger brother to a typical dolcetto. Very good!

Will be interesting to see how this evolves. Great aromatics and fruit on entry. Keeps going mid palate with a nice finish. — 4 years ago
