One of my favorite "easy drinking" reds. It's fruity, but not too much. It's good to the end. This wine is really good with lamb. Read more

I infinitely prefer the regular Ridge Lytton Springs bottlings, but recognize that the winemaker has to make different choices when the grapes in a certain block get over-ripe. The 2.6% residual sugar has helped retain the fruit - plums, black cherry, and raisins are at the forefront - but has also, to my taste, sucked most of the vibrancy out this wine. Obviously well-made; just not my cup of tea. Definitely a dessert/cheese wine as opposed to a wine to be served with main courses.

This wine was very soft and smooth. I was surprised to learn that viognier was blended in as well. Wild berry, earth, and mineral on the tongue. Bordeaux like.

I concur- cant find it for less than $35. This is a really well balanced zin.

Dark fruit with a "fortified" wine character. The wine is not fortified but at 16.1% alcohol it may fool you. Definitely a food wine. Well made wine. Even with the high alcohol, no burn on the wood box finish.

By far one of my favorite zins. Not sure where snooth got the price for this one, but I can't find it for under $35
