Pagani's centenarian vines grow in northern Sonoma valley, the vineyard mostly Zinfandel, with alicante bouschet (9 percent) and petite sirah (3) as well. In 2000, they grew a broad and generous red, even if the wine's substantial acidity kicks the fruit aside to show the lean, sophisticated structure underneath. It trails off with an impression of burnt chocolate, peppermint, pie crust, interactions of fruit, tannin and oak that should only gain complexity with age.

The (15% alcohol) 2001 Zinfandel Pagani Ranch (88% Zinfandel and 12% Alicante Bouchet) is a powerful effort. It reveals surprisingly good acidity for a wine of this size, as well as deep, chewy, Amarone-like raisiny, raspberry and cherry flavors intermixed with hints of prunes and earth. A touch of asphalt also makes an appearance in this full-bodied, chunky 2001. Drink it over the next 5ndash;6 years.

Pagani Ranch has long been a renowned source for top quality Zinfandel, and Ridgersquo;s 1999 Zinfandel Pagani Ranch (90% Zinfandel, 7% Alicante Bouchet, and 3% Petite Sirah) came in at 14.1% alcohol. Its dense ruby/purple color is accompanied be tangy, hard acidity, a big, sweet, black cherry and briery noise, excellent ripeness, medium to full body, and a moderately long, austere finish. Enjoy it over the next 4ndash;6 years.

Ripe, earthy and a touch funky, with a twinge of dill to the ripe, raisiny fruit flavors that are rich and concentrated. Turns tannic. Drink now through 2004.

The 2008 Zinfandel Pagani Ranch is a blend 85% Zinfandel, 10% Alicante Bouschet, and the rest Petite Sirah that tips the scales at a lofty 15% alcohol. Possessing ripe black cherry and blackberry fruit intermixed with some wood spice, earth, and subtle herbs, this wine cuts a broad, rich, full-bodied swath across the palate. More exuberant and richer than the more elegant Lytton Springs, this is full-throttle Zinfandel at its best, but beautifully pure, textured, and long. It should drink well for 7ndash;8 years

Dark, ripe, rich and concentrated, with chewy black cherry, blackberry, chocolate and cedar, finishing with chunky tannins. Drink now through 2006.
