Paso Robles 2006
I really love Ridge. This wine also is excellent as well, but we should wait at least a couple of years for the maturity. But if you want to enjoy this wine now, I recommend you to decant the wine first and actually I did it.
Very smooth right out of the bottle with a perfect spice finish.
very well balanced, almost classic zin. spice, not overbearing fruit, brambly, very drinkable on day 1 and day 2 (vacuumed).
Three and a half glasses

ORGANICRich fruit and the spice of barrel aging are beautifully balanced in this accessible zinfandel. It will be at its best over the next five years.
Wine Tasting NotesThis vineyard's forward fruit and soft tannins have often dictated early bottling. In this vintage, however, our blind tastings confirmed the need for a full thirteen months of barrel age. Rich fruit and the spice of barrel aging are beautifully balanced in this accessible zinfandel. It will be at its best over the next five years.
Paso Robles produces some of the biggest, fullest Zins around, and this is no exception. Bursting with raspberry and boysenberry fruit and with an exceptional, ageworthy structure. We haven't seen Paul Draper's Paso Robles bottling in several vintages, and we're thrilled to have it back!
