Ridge Zinfandel Pagani Ranch 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

78% Zinfandel, 18% Alicante Bouschet, 3% Petite Sirah. Rich boysenberry and rhubarb aromas together with barrel spice, licorice and fresh mint. On the palate is ripe plum fruit, juicy acid, sensuous tannins, and a long finish. Alcohol 14.7%. Not yet reviewed; 2010 vintage rated 93 points by Wine Advocate: ...another striking wine. It boasts fabulous depth yet at the same time maintains remarkable aromatic freshness and nuance. Dark cherries, flowers, mint and licorice flesh out on a beautifully articulated finish laced with persistent saline notes. This slightly cooler site was somewhat protected from the severe heat. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020.

Whack me with your vanilla stick, and a slathering of toasted coconut while you're at it, all layered over rich and slightly sweet zinberry fruit packed with briary nuance. No one will call this elegant or refined, but it does explode with rich, pure blackberry and logan berry fruit on the palate and is a wonderfully satisfying old school example of Zinfandel! 92pts

Beautiful on the nose with bright wild berry fruit framed by floral and mineral, and smoky top notes. Rich and powerful on entry, this is already very complex with sweet tart berry fruit framed by a little ash, briar and wood spice on entry. gaining focus in the mouth I love the tannins here, angular and craggy as they support the core of dark, inky bramble berry fruit. Just explosive on the mid-palate where the core of dark oily fruit is remarkably fresh and deep all leading to a long finish that shows off a little chocolatiness of the oak. 92pts
