I don’t normally buy Zinfandel but the girl at the store said this was “fantastic” so I bought it. I still won’t change my mind about this grape but this one was pretty good. Barnyard on the nose, red fruit on the palate. Paired pretty good with football and a good friend! — 7 days ago
This bottle/vintage is partially tasty! Almost jammy with low tannins and fruity nose. Delicious. — 13 days ago
Really a nice value. Nose leaps from the glass with sweet, high-toned cherry and rose petal florals, along with faint notes of Graham cracker/maple syrup and gravel. In the mouth it’s got sappy, bright cherry ooze and cracked stone minerality. On the lean side, the acidity is brisk. I’d like the finish to be a bit longer, but it’s lots of fun. — 18 days ago
WNH NY, 2021.
The morning after the sausage-making the night before. The sausages were great during consumption (so-to-speak), but when you wake up, you see how the sausages were made!
Personally, I’ve never had a bad bottle of Ridge, and this example followed that pattern. Tilts much more towards a Bdx in terms of its style and personality. Black plums, currants and a hint of soft tobacco present on the nose and palate. Medium weight, with moderate tannins, but brighter acidity than I expected. Out of a magnum, this needs more time, but presented beautifully tonight.
A great gift from @Shay A’s cellar - thanks bud! — 13 days ago
Cherry, blackberry, raspberry, currant, mossy earth and oak. Light-bodied and soft tannins. — 12 days ago
Basic and simple label. No extras. Rust edged ruby colored in the glass. Aroma is unique. Old books in a wood paneled room meets well made finished compost with a splash of cherry preserves. Flavors are cooked a bit, but not overly oxidized. Plenty of the cherry. Black cherry jam. Savory streak. Complex finish with some minty zip. This is fairly smooth and elegant. Low alcohol of 13%. Very much an Italian style like good chianti or clean Barbera. Great red vino at a very good price. — 5 days ago
