Ridge Vineyards is one of the granddaddies of Zinfandel production in California, particularly with their twin flagships Geyserville and Lytton Springs, though neither of those is technically a Zinfandel anymore.
While both of these wines started as Zinfandels, or more specifically field blends with enough Zin in them to be labeled as such, the regulations have moved. Today, they are labeled as field blends with proprietary names. Make no mistake, these are classic California Zinfandels, balanced and rich with a very favorable record for ageing well.
This is the Ford Mustang of Zinfandel.
